Take his temp..he should be between 101.5 and 103.5...if its normal, Tussen will help with congestion...B complex is a nice support vitamin.
If he has a temp I would start a 5 day antibiotic as well...

Best wishes

Awesome, will check temp in the am as I get to write a 5 page paper on piglets at the moment :) what kind of antibiotics would he need to be on if he did have a temp?

OTC meds I would choose Tylan 200 1 cc per 25# Sub Q every 12 hours for five full days...it does sting a bit ..I give it where the neck meets the body..just pinch up a nice tent ....
If you can get RX I like Nuflor 3 cc per 100# once daily for five full days sub Q

If he doesnthave a fever but Tussen and B complex isnt helping you may need to go ahead with antibiotics...: ) best wishes
