Treating a Sick Pig

Surprised this morning when our new pig had lost his appetite. New pigs struggling with previous conditions and new changes. ALSO! "SheShaw" gets even prettier. Plus, "You Can Farm" speech, HERE: bit.ly/PolyfaceDesigns

    Looks almost like there's something caught in his throat or down his gullet. Maybe he swallowed a chicken bone? I'm sure he'll get better. Thanks for the great content. Keep up the good work. בס״ד

    Is it because of different feed?

    It’s kind work. Give it wormer. You’re not butchering it. I had a pig for from the same thing. They will begin to not be able to walk

      We choose not to chemical deworm our breeding stock especially. We want stock that is naturally hardy, that way they pass that toughness on to their offspring.

    Oregano, electrolytes. Apple cider vinegar in the water to control PH. This will pass in 3 days or so... I use Mucasol for the cough.

    The droopy eyes and lack of appetite could indicate a fever, coupled with the cough could be shipping fever (I don't know what the pig equivalent is called) or the start of pneumonia. Definitely keep an eye on him. If you want to go the natural route garlic and oregano are your friends, nature's antibiotics.
