If I'm not mistaken "hooting" is not a sure sign of heart problems right? But it is usually good bet?

No, it doesn't always mean heart problems.

But it should always be checked out, and an xray of the heart should be done at the very least.

He will likely check to make sure it is not clouded because of an injury. If it is a cataract or similar condition, there is likely nothing one would do.

Well back from the vet.

Left eye - Abnormally dilated
Possible cause - Lack of light from right eye or bacterial.

Right eye (the one pictures) -
1) Pupil Abnormally small,
2) Cataract
3) Misshaped iris. Possible cause - heredity, Bacterial infection (gave us Bayril) or a disease (i.e. diabetes)

The vet recommended for a better and more thorough diagnosis we should see a eye specialist.

As far as the eye goes, have your vet give you gentamicin sulfate ophthalmic solution made by FALCON.
We have had 4 piggies with this and also Bright Eye had a very bad eye that was ready to pop . This stuff works great!

Just put 1 drop in piggies eye 2 times a day, and 3-4 days it is all better. This stuff is the best I have used for the eyes.

Wieght 12/5/06 2lbs 6.4oz 1086g
Wieght 12/7/06 2lbs 4.4oz 1033g

On the 7th we put a water bottle and food dish in the hay loft to try to help KC eat. Rodger our other boar kept chasing him everytime he came in sight.

Wieght 12/9/06 2lbs 6.1oz! 1080g!

He has been chasing Rodger out of the hay loft and moving around a lot more. The spot on his eyes also appears to be getting smaller.

Thanks CICSTEVE for the advice. When we take KC back for his follow up I will ask the vet for it. Right now we can afford to get it until then.
