Pot Bellied Pigs/Pot belly pig


I have received a pbp for my birthday a week ago. Everything has been going fine. I guess, this evening he got sick and I'm kinda sick, I was thinking that he ate to much....I really don't know if he was ready to leave his mom and I don't know if I'm feeding it properly.....

Piglets do best when they stay with their Momma pig for at least 8 weeks. If your baby is younger than that, you'll need to feed baby goat milk or sow replacement formula. Young piglets need to be kept warm, don't let him get a chill. If he has diarrhea for more than a day, you'll need to see a vet. Diarrhea can quickly kill a baby pig.
