My brother went hog hunting and brought home a piglet... So now i guess Im stuck with it now. I'm not sure how i feel about that. Im not a fan of pigs, but i feel bad for the little guy. He is VERY tiny. Umbilical cord is still attached, but dry and has been bitten off pretty low. I would say a day or 2 old, maybe 3 but i know NOTHING about pigs. ill post a pic. Should i put iodine on his cord even though its dry? Getting him to eat hasn't been fun, but am getting him to swallow a little. I'm feeding goat milk by the way. He hasn't gotten much. I've tried feeding him 2x, and we've had him for about 3-4 hours. I read they need fed about every 3-4 hours, so I'm trying to stay on that schedule. Right now he is in a little cat crate buried and snuggled in towels right next to me. Hes staying warm, and is squealy, and likes to explore my room. I think he is pretty healthy. He's a wild pig, so i wiped him down with a warm soapy rag because i dont want whatever he may have. He has peed, but i havent looked for poop in his crate. Ok so questions: How much milk should he be getting at each feeding? Read that the milk needs to be at 90 degrees. Just confirming that is correct. Should he be getting dewormed, or anything? Any medications at all? If you have ever bottle fed piglets, what is the best way you get them to take a bottle? I am using a screw on yellow and red nipple. I think its called a Pritchard but i forgot lol. Probably a very stupid question: baby goats dont drink water until about 2 weeks. Is it the same for piglets? Or does he need water free choice? If i think of anything else, ill share Thanks!
