I went to the vet this A.M. after work to see about some Advantage. The vet wants to see him first, so we have an apointment for Sat. morning. I am still not sure what these nit looking things are but we shall see. He is not itching, nor is the other boys. Maggie is totally in another room so not in any contact.
I have checked her over and I see nothing but a huge belly, that pops like popcorn.
Speaking of Maggie: If she does not have her pups by Sat she too is going into the vet with me. Today is 62 days since she went into the shelter on April 29th.
The questions are: Was she pregnant when she was found? Or did she get pregnant at the shelter? There is no knowledge of her age or anything about her. I have been doing alot of reading on the pregnancy threads and on GL.
Stress is a very important factor. I have been keeping her very quiet.
She eats very little pellets and drinks very little water. She does eat all her veggies (with some water on them) and is eating hay. My question is this.
If she is very close to deliver would it cause her stress or harm by taking her to the vet on Sat while she is still pregnant? Assuming all goes well and she delivers by Sat should I still take her and the pups to the vet. I am totally perpared to take her to the vet if any troulble arises, or my daughter is if I am at work. What does worry me is we live an hour away. Again any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Pregnancy can take up to 73 days in some instances. If you are worried that taking her to the vet will cause more stress and she isn't sick, then don't take her unless she has problems with delivery or their is a problem with the pups after delivery. No one knows your pig right now better than you do. You will have to make the judgment call.

Thank you. She isn't sick at this time. I'll just wait it and and see how she is by Sat.
I don't want to stress her out.
