Pot Bellied Pigs/Male mini pig penile discharge


My 2 1/2 month old male mini pig has white sticky stuff coming out of the pouch where his penis is. It blocks his hole unless I pull it out. It's very thick and stretchy like. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

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

Pigs are prone to urinary tract infections and blockages. This particular discharge sounds awfully thick, and may indicate a problem. I suggest getting piggy to a vet. Piggy may need antibiotics. There's a list of veterinarians that see pet pigs at

If piggy is not neutered, neutering will help a lot. It will reduce the discharge, odor and humping behavior.
