Pot Bellied Pigs/Mini Pig with itchy skin!


Shawna wrote at 2014-01-28 00:22:45
Long story short my son came home with a little pig that he rescued, that had been mistreated and was extremely itchy, now, I'm not sure if it has mange, or extreme wind burn, sun burn, or frost bite, or all of the above. but the poor little thing was beside its self scratching. I bathed her in baking soda and had instant results, i have been applying virgin olive oil in between bathing, and she has stopped scratching. her fur is growing back fast. I dont see baking soda bathes as remedys on any of the sites, but it is also anti fungal.
