    It depends. It depends on the medicine and his weight, and whether or not he's eating and drinking normally. If he's not eating and drinking enough and his weight drops, you'll need to use the Critical Care

    Trimethoprim sulfate. Definitely watch his appetite on this medication. It's not as hard as, say, Baytril, but it DID affect all of my own pigs appetites. Scooter wouldn't eat at all on this medication.

    Just a update... he is eating all of his veggies and gets excited about the things he gets excited about again. I stopped critical care after i gave medicine and waited about an hour or two to see if he would eat on his own and he did and has gone back several times now (medicine was given after he ate food veggies and hay) he is definitely back to his normal self already and hasn't had any issues.
