    Keeping pig warm

    I feel like my skinny pig is cold. My house is set to 70 and if I increase the temp my family will not be happy. She is in her fleece hut more and more. Is there anything out there to heat up the cage?

    Add more fleece, pig igloo with fleece covers, and I saw somewhere there are little sweaters for skinny pigs!

    I believe SkinnyPigs1 has a video on her channel in which she shows how to set up a little heating pad system for her skinny pigs. There's a way to do it that allows the pig to move off of it if it gets too warm for them. They can't stay on it constantly.

    I would set up the cage the way folks with reptiles do it. One side of the cage is kept warm with either a heating pad or light and the other is cooler so they can adjust to what suits them.

    Thanks everyone, I just set the heat up more to 72 in her part of the house and she seems to be coming out more and more. Going to check out that other members site about how to set up her cage, thank you
