I am introducing my three piggies together after the new girl went threw Quarantine etc and she is a healthy girl. Well they are all in their play area together and my Lucille started having white liquid like Milk coming from her eyes. That has NEVER happened before. Can anyone tell me what this might be?

Thank you

Most likely from when she was cleaning her face. Just double check there is nothing in her eyes and that it doesn't continue.

It is most likely just the cleaning fluid pigs secrete to clean their eyes and face, or get something out if it is in there (a piece of bedding or such). However, it could be something else, so keep an eye on her, and if you keep seeing a lot of the fluid and it doesn't stop, take her to a vet. It may some type of infection, like a URI. As long as her eyes are clear, and not crusty, cloudy, or watery, I think it's probably just cleaning fluid. Just keep an eye on her!

Was it just before or after she washed herself? If so, it's a grooming fluid that comes from just below the eye and is completely normal.

Yeah did wipe her face before hand. I have just never seent hat before. Her eyes are clear . I will keep an eye one her. On a side note the introduction is going very well a little chattering a little nose kissing and nowCaramel and Lucille are laying beside Holly I will post some pic after.


Thank you so much for the help.

It is also possible that Lucille was the unfortunate victim of a pee squirt from one of the other girls. Or, she may have been cleaning her face because of all the introduction behavior and it made the cleaning fluid more noticeable to you.
Just keep an eye on her :)
