Pot Bellied Pigs/my 3yr old potbelly pig goes potty in her bed
Hi, i have a 3yr.old potbelly pig and she has been pottying in her bed. She is overweight and has arthritis so she hasn't been getting around to well. She lives out in a little building with her sister have a potty area not far from her sleeping area but she keeps continuing to use her bedding. Is she doing this because of lazyness or could she really be sore? Also they are both blind but her sister has never had an accident. Please help
I am not a veterinarian and can not make a medical diagnosis over the internet.
A pig should not pee in bed, unless they are trapped in the bed. The girl that is peeing herself may have a urinary or uterine infection, or she may have severe arthritis and have trouble getting up. Another possibility is a very slippery floor that makes it hard for her to get up. She might be getting up to go, then falling and peeing on herself.
I think she should see a vet to rule out any infection. A vet can prescribe arthritis medicine that will reduce pain and inflammation. If she is obese, loosing weight will help, too.
