Hey all! I have a question, I'm using puppy pee pads for my pig. Is that o.k.? I don't see a lot of you using them. There pretty cheap, so I prefer to use them. I have one more question, If I use them, when should I change (clean?) them out. I have been changing them every two to three days. Is that too long? He poops A LOT. lol Oh, and one more thing, is it normal for a pig to poop where he sleeps? Because mine doesn't care where he is, he'll poop.:sarcastic
Thanks!

The best thing I have found to do with the puppy pads is put them under towels and fleece. I change mine once a week when I change out the towels and fleece.

There is a danger to using puppy pads by themselves. If your pig decides to chew on them, the plastic and filling can cause intestinal blockage.

There are people here on the forum that use them but they are in combination with other beddings like fleece and/or towels.

It's very normal for pigs to pee and poo where they sleep. They will poo where ever they happen to be in the cage.
