Question
How often should I bathe my 18 week old mini pig? And do they require any special care for their feet if they are inside pets? thank you.

Answer
Hello,
If your piglet is an indoor pet he or she doesn't need bathing very often.  Brushing is much more important as they have a tendency to have dry skin and this will help keep the dead skin off and lubricated.
You can find the best coat and Skin products on the royaldandie.com web site on their product page.
As far a foot care ....they need to get used to you filing them with a heavy duty emery board while they are young.
Taking them for walks on pavement and gravel also helps. .
Hope this helps.
