    Conditions Mabel is very small

    Mabel is my youngest pig. She is nearly 1 years old. She is tiny. Looks likr a baby still. She averages only about 700 grams. I worry constantly about her weight. What should I do to help her gain weight?! I just worry so much since my other pigs all weigh over 1000 grams.

The mother checks on them only a couple times throughout the night and leaves them alone during the day to deter predators. Never bring home wild rabbits. Also, rabbits are natural carriers of pasteurella which is...
