Hello anyone who may have some advise for me

I have just been down to feed our kune's & one of them won't get up....when does a pig not want food???!!!! I've spent a few minutes with her. She doesn't feel any hotter than usual, can't even tempt her with apple/banana held to her mouth :(

I'm thinking I need to call the vet a.s.a.p......any thoughts please??

Many thanks

1 hr later......she has messed in her bed, which I definately do not think is good. I have check the gums on both girls & She does have a loose tooth, but surely this is not enough to make her how she is?

Have called vet & they are goingto come out to visit......

Hi Wendy,

Vet got to me at after 1pm (supposedly late morning!!!), Precilla still hadn't moved in all that time.
Temp of 41, given anti-biotic & a steriod to help bring temp down. Just been to her now & shes eaten the food I| gave her which is really good to have happen.

Apparently, theres a lot of pig viruses going around at the moment???

Thank you for your reply & hopefully she will soon be back to her normal self.

Her sister has amazed me - she has really mothered her today & when we put her sister into the next pen so that vet could give jab, she got really upset. They really do love each other soooo much :)
