Oh, poor baby, having to haul around that stone. I am continually amazed at Henry's ability to bounce back. He is one fabulous and lucky pig.

Heal fast Henry! We love you.

Henry!

I'm just catching up with the thread. Please tell Grandpa Henry that there is no competition around here for growing the largest stone! That thing is rediculously large.

I folded fleece over a cut up towel to make a bed for CJ. His butt has bite wounds on it that are painfull when they touch the side of the weaver beds. I just draped some fleece over the sides of the grid to make it into a hut.

So glad that Henry is home again. :)

That stone is amazing and shocking. Sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery.

Henry is hanging out in his pigloo, pulling in one piece of hay after another.

I have a question. He hasn't made any poop yet (though there was one in the carrier when I picked him up). He also didn't eat hay or pellets for the last couple of days. Should I be concerned? He's now inhaling hay.

If he's eating his hay I wouldn't worry for a day or two. It takes time for food to pass completely through their systems.

Congratulations to the amazing stupendous Henry for coming through this with flying colors.

Superpig is currently out of his pigloo, snarfing down hay, and drinking copious amounts of water--and, apparently, peeing up a storm.

I fully expect to go downstairs and see him on a weight bench doing bench presses.

Now I have a mental image of Grandpa Henry all bulked up like beefcake (I guess he would be hamcake, being as he is a pig, of a sort).

I'm glad Grandpa Henry is doing well. If he really likes his cuddle cup, would he like a fleece pad with a rolled up piece of fleece behind it? Then he could walk in. What a superpig!

Tell him that if he wants a Zen rock garden, you can buy the rocks from Home Depot, he doesn't have to make them himself.

Honestly, Henry is acting better now, eight hours post-op, than either Gilbert or Sully did by three or four DAYS post-op.

He's even moving his pigloo around. He looks bright-eyed and happy. I'm completely in shock over it...but very, very thankful.

You must have a really great vet.

Our vet has done a lot of her training WITH our pigs, I think, but she goes above and beyond researching for us. When we talked to her about the Actigall, she spent a lot of time on the internet and calling other vets to find out what she could about it.
