That is something very good to learn, unfortunally it had to be your lil piggy who had to eat the nose ring. But now if she seems fine, I hope she will be. Wow I just honestly never thought that piercings could be pulled by a piggy. Thank you somuch for posting this. But again Im sorry that it happened to you and your piggy.
You've helped alot of people with piercings be a little safer just in case that can happen with thier piggies.

I have been on poop patrol (its been named that now) and she doesnt SEEM to have passed it.. but I just wonder if I just missed it. Or if she just spit it out.

Anyways. thanks for the concern and advice.
