My Abby needs to be spayed for overactive ovarian cysts. I have very little room for even a small cage in here but I need to separate her from her buddy during the healing process. Any recommendations for a small comfy cage that fits on a coffee table?
 
What kind of cage is she in now? When I had a boar go thru eye removal surgery, I divided the c&c so he could have a familiar space but separated from his friend. Idk if this is a good set up since her surgery is more than what we did.
 
I'd just buy two or three grids and some zip ties and make a divider in the current cage. It needs to be pretty small right after surgery, say 2 feet by 1 foot. As she feels better and her incision heals, you can gradually make the enclosure larger.

But do plan on doing full reintroductions when you put them back together. I've known of several pigs, including two of my own, to have aggressive interactions after that kind of separation. It doesn't always happen, but you need to be prepared for it.
