I picked up my first rescue today in Washington. He is black and white and is 5 weeks old. But he has a foot problem. His foot is turned in twards his chest so he ends up walked on the side of his foot. He doesn't seem like it hurts him. But does any one have any suggestions, comments, or info? Oh I need help with picking a name out for him. And also I think I might keep the little guy he is a sweety. (I will be getting more rescues soon next weekend and in November)

I also went to look at the pigg I will be adopting (sort of) in three weeks. He is a boar, and is all black. I can't wait to bring him home.

Thanks in advance,
Cinn&sprinslave

Ya I will take him to the vet soon. But not today I am super busy. Most likely tomorrow. He didn't look like he was in pain when I did spot cleans, and feeding time this morning. But when I check on him later and he looks like he is in pain I will try to sqeeze a vet visit in today.

I like Domino or Loppy!

I think I am going to go with Loppy, but maybe Domino. Not really sure....


Ok I went to check on him- He was popcorning in his cage even with his hurt foot! (he lives in a 2x3). But a vet check is definantly happening tomorrow because I want to make sure he is ok. So far no signs of mites, or any other parasite, he has clear eyes. etc.
