I am pig sitting my local library pig for the weekend so she can be constantly monitored by someone who has GP experience. Yesterday she went to the vet to have surgery done on her prolapsed uterus. The vet spayed her.
I am somewhat concerned about what the vet said to do as post op care as he said to feed yogurt (and I know pigs are lactose intolerant) if she is not eating or her poos are soft. As a second choice he said to get some probiotics. He also did not give her any pain meds (which I find odd). She has eaten a bit but not a lot at all and she has very few poos and they are soft.
Since she is not my pig I am leary as to what I should give her but I obviously want what is going to be best for her. Is there anything I can give her to help her eat (not sure I can find critical care, would a pellet mash suffice?) or relieve her pain? If I do give her anything should I call the vet first to let them know what she is getting?
I posted this on Guinea Lynx as well but want to know what everybody thinks.
