I have a one year old piggy who bites.It is not all the time but still draws blood
What should I do? I really dont want to get rid of her. Any suggestions?
When and how does she bite? Does she just nip you when you're holding her? Or does she bite when you try to pick her up?

Nipping when they're being held is usually a sign of wanting to get back in the cage. Biting when you try to pick them up may be a sign of fear but is usually a symptom of mites -- mites are very painful for them when someone touches their skin.

Is she itching and scratching any? And do you see any marks or scabs on her skin?
