Oh, the poor little pig! Rinse them off with warm sterile saline solution in the meantime. Watch for any signs of infection. I imagine the vet will examine them all and especially look for any that are particularly deep and need more thorough cleaning and monitoring.

I can't stop thinking about what must have happened. It's never happened before clearly. I just keep going over it in my mind. Patrick had been seen off so too speak or chased into the hayloft. As my other pigs were in the main cage and both came to greet me as normal. I don't understand how the doors opened or why he went into the hayloft were he could be cornered so easily. He could have got out the cage but yet he didn't. Thankfully his wife didn't give my grieve when he was united but he is so quiet tonight but I don't blame him.

Wilma is perfect not a scratch on her, I guess Fred was protecting his wife and his territory. I have a vet appointment for Patrick tomorrow he's ment to be having an X-ray but I don't want to put him through that straight after today. I'll have to speak to the vet I would much rather let him settle first.

I'm very sad, this could of been avoided but hindsight is a wonderful thing, if I could turn the clock back I would.

I just sobbed and hugged Patrick when I got him out and gave him lots of veg.

I imagine he was pretty shocked after his fall and thats when Fred leaped. MY poor boys, it's nature.

One thing I know for sure it will never happen again!

We look much better this morning although Patrick is still stand offish. Freds wounds do seem worse this morning but we are off to see the vet to have a proper check over!

I haven't posted about Patricks health but he was booked into the vet already, as he has been crying when passing urine again. She felt his bladder but was unable to do anything as he was in pain which you could tell.

He's booked in for an Xray Monday. which they agreed to no GA!

The wounds from the fight are fine although I've just to keep an eye on them.

I did notice scabs on Freds foot which I also got checked, it looks to be the start of Bumblefoot.

We're not having a good month!

Oh, the poor boys. Fred was guarding his wife. Are Patrick's teeth okay? Sometimes they can break them when they fall.

I'll have to guess it's taking a power nap. Fred is adorable even with his eye wound (hope that's healing well). Glad to read that Patrick has no stones ... can't imagine how worried you must have been to see him with Fred and Wilma and the poor senior getting beaten up. I know Fred was just protecting his lady but poor Patrick. Milo looks like he can advertise for anti-frizz shampoo.

I Love Milo and Fred. I always have a huge soft spot for Fred because he's the first pig I read about when I first signed up for an account, that face!

Oh yes, shocked wasn't the word I thought I was in a horror movie. Everyone is healing nicely and I personally think Fred looks quite macho with his eye wound. No one dare mess! I'm so happy it wasn't worse. I was so lucky the damage these boys can inflict when woman are about can be brutal. Thankfully we got off extremely lightly! Patrick and me just got a very big shock!

Although Fred reguarly shouts obscenities at Milo, I bet it was his dream come true Patrick falling into his, it's like I can finally eat you!

GP, you are so right Milo could be an advert for Fizzease, never thought of that perhaps, a story may come from that! It is power napping thats what we do best and there is nothing better than watching you pigs lie out and go for a snooze. I think it shows just how comfortable and settled they are!

Serelixyue, Fred has a special spot in my heart as he's my first pig and absolutely stunning, not too mention so full of character. I do love ginger pigs I am a major ffan of Puffy, if only you weren't so far away I'd be over to pignap thats for sure!

I'm so glad about Patrick too, was dreading stones showing up, so happy! :).

Why me, you are an evil slave! I'm leaving straight after your done!

Image

I'm mentally packing my suitcase, You shall see!

Image

Pebbles, were are you? We have to get out of here!

Image

Oh no, I'm caught!

Image

This is humilating, how can you laugh?

Image

Pebbles, I'm afraid you have to take one for the team! I'm just going to jump on you too jump out!

Image

Very good, What am I suppose to do?

Image

We're leaving...

Image

Can anyone of you GuineaLynx people give us a new home?
