I know in people how you get it. What about gp? What could I been giving them for them to get it? How hard is it to give them medicine? I know my rabbit wasnt easy. :(
 
Same way, bacteria getting up the urinary tract. Often caused by a dirty cage or living with rabbits. You give them medication with a syringe, some pigs don't mind it at all, while others need to be rolled up in a towel & coaxed.
 
Its not the rabbit. We put him to sleep years ago and they never lived together. I clean their cage 3 times a week. I wonder if i should chnage back to littler instead of using towels and fleece.
 
Even if you do clean their cage, pigs can still get UTI by sleeping/sitting on dirty spots. Are you sure yours have UTI?
 
How do you know yours have an UTI? What kind of symptoms have they been having, and have they seen a vet?
