Caring For A Pet Pig

The first thing you need to know is they don’t stay little for long. They do get big so make sure you’re ready for that responsibility. If you are, here are some helpful ways to make it your baby.

Adopt a pig from a reputable breeder. A pig from a pet store may seem cute, which they are, but it may turn out that they are not healthy. If you visit the breeder’s facility, you can meet the parents of your new baby. That way you can judge their temperaments and know what to expect with yours.

Give your pig a lot of your time. Pigs are very social and it’s important to make time for them. If not, they can become very moody and disruptive. Let’s face it, who wants a moody pig.

Make sure they have plenty of space for regular exercise. No matter if you keep them indoors or outdoors, make sure they have enough space to be active and move around. Without that, they can become overweight, which could create health issues in the future.

Provide enough food and water. Pigs will eat almost anything so it’s important they maintain a regular diet. It should consist of a commercial pig food thats low on protein, low fat and high fiber. Fruits and vegetables can be added to their diets as a special treat.

These are just a few suggestions for a healthy and happy pig and, of course, a happy you!
