Unwell weaner

Post by repatexpat » Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:51 pm

New pig owners (bought two of our gilts 12 days ago; will be 3 months old 20Dec) have just written:
one of the pigs is not its self just been down to them to feed them and the one pig wouldn't move or come out the hut and it hasn't touched any of its food and keeps lifting its tail as if it's going to do a poo it done a couple solid droppings but smaller than usual size any ideas?

I suggested tempting it with apple/carrot and encouraging it to drink. Other suggestions? Thanks!

Any recommendations for a large animal/pig vet near Wolverhampton?

Weaner up and about this morning. Slightly reduced appetite but eating.

For the future, would like to offer pig newbees a vet recommendation if available. Thanks!
