I wrote on here before telling about her excessive shedding. It went away and came back again. I took her to the vet and she is on a topical Revolution 3 times every two weeks. I am so confused as to what is going on.
She had an ultarasound done to show no cysts. She itches every once in awhile and is shedding like crazy. Lilly has no bald spots or sores but I am worried about her. Are all these things linked together? Also she licks our hands like crazy, like a little doggie.
Should I go to the vet for the discharge thing or ride it out????
- You can quote me
Describe the discharge. Is it cheesy, gritty, thick or thin? Liquid or semisolid? Does it have any odor to it?
If this were my pig, I'd have her to the vet. It's possible it isn't coming from her vagina at all; it's possibly coming from her urinary tract. However, it's also possible it is a pyometra and that needs immediate (no exaggeration, immediate) veterinary attention.
Are you sure she cant have discharge when they are in season? She acts like she is. She is eating and drinking great. She had diarrhia 2 days ago but now her droppings seem fine. I was out of town and my mother fed her out of date pellets. But ever since I threw those out she hasnt had diarrhia.
- Get on your bike.
edit- I just read whittibo's thread. Is your pig around males by chance?
I am going to take her to the vet, because of her excessive shedding.
She has one dose left of Revolution to take for her "bugs", should I wait and then take her in??
She weighs 2lbs6oz. The treatment is the Revolution three doses, one every 2 weeks does that sound right? The vet broke the doses up because initially it's for dogs and cats. I pull her fur back and put it on towards the middle of her body. Should I do it behind her ears or not. Sorry this is off the subject but I am out of ideas! : ) And she looks very uncomfortable when I push her fur back, like her skin hurts. But there are no red spots or anything?.
It does make them uncomfortable when you brush their fur the wrong way. The same goes for most animals including if you try and brush my hair the wrong way.
