    Re: Will they ever get along?

    Sorry for misunderstanding i will never do anything to intentional hurt or harm any of my animals to be honest the cage came with a divider already installed which I have sense removed day one ...only have had them a week so they still getting used to me and their cage and all the noises and still very much skittish but coming around and becoming more and more comfortable tomorrow I'm doing s complete cage clean and going with all fleece liners which I'm hoping will be a lot easier to keep clean than using bedding

    Re: Will they ever get along?

    update: I feel like such a bad owner. Both pigs had bled during introductions and I didn't notice until I saw that one of them had a small gash on his head. I checked the other one, and sure enough he has a little cut on his nose. I cleaned both of them as best I could, but the wounds were already healing. Neither look infected, but I am still debating weather or not to take them to a vet. I will not be housing them together, but I will put grids between them and maybe expand the cage so they can see and smell each other, but not be able to attack.

    One of my pigs wouldn't get near my phone so I could take a picture, but here is my youngest:

    Doesn't look to bad id probably take him to vet to make sure there are no unseen injuries and keep a eye on it till you can ...

    I wouldn't take them to a vet unless there are signs of infection. If you notice redness, swelling, heat, odor, or pus, then yes, get to a vet. If none of those signs appear, they'll probably heal normally.
