Hello,

For the past few weeks my girl has been having some weird eye and head movement. When she is running around acting fine(other the URI Im treating her for) her head starts to go to the left and then come back center. Her eyes do this as well. I think I saved her once by searching what to do for a heat stroke in piggies I have since been doing that each attack she has. they are up to a few times a week now. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated. I know shes getting up there now. She is my little trooper and my first piggy. Thanks

You said she's being treated for a URI - have you asked the vet about the behavior? I also have an older pig (vet estimated to be 5 to 6 yrs old last year) who has a head tilt and his head moves to the side of his head tilt. When he tries to center his head, it goes back to the side. At least for my pig, it doesn't bother him and it's nothing concerning.
