Question
hello,  i have a little pot belly pig, and he seems very happy and healthy, but every night he pukes, i think it may be from eating to much but im not sure,  please respond and let me know what you think I should do.  thank you!

Answer
I am not a veterinarian and can not make a medical diagnosis over the internet.

Pigs seldom vomit. Eating too quickly can cause a pig to choke and cough up a bit. But pigs are built to over eat, that is not the cause.

Ulcers, intestinal blockage, and accidental poisoning are the most common causes of frequent vomiting.

Your pig needs to see a vet. There's a list of veterinarians that see pet pigs at www.farec.org
