- Thanks for the Memories
When Neal exhibited similar symptoms, I took him to the vet. He was able to stand a day or two after symptoms started, but he was not well. Vet said he was arthritic but also that he looked like maybe he'd had a mini stroke. I chose to let him go.
I do hope that your pig's condition was temporary, but not all pigs have a good recovery.
- You can quote me
I've never heard of it used for arthritis, but one never knows.
I'm not a big believer in or fan of supplements, but I have seen them work on occasion very, very well, on both humans and animals. If it works, coincidental or not, Alice is walking and that's what counts.
The homeopathic vet has fixed gps of mine when my vet has suggested euthanasia. Alice is getting better by the day! She can stand on her legs and buzzes around her cage now! I just wanted to let you know what was going on in case it might help another pig out there.
Unfortunately, it is me again with a question about Alice and her legs. She is now pulling her hair off of one of her back legs. Is that a sign of pain? She is doing better but has her on and off days. I guess I am just questioning her quality of life. She is a sweet, docile and loving pig. I wonder if she would cry at all if she was in pain? The chewing off of the hair just happened yesterday...
Thank you for your thoughts!
Thank you again for your help! You are all the best!
She was with me for 6 years but was pregnant when I got her so I am unsure of her age.
I miss her very much already. She was a beautiful little girl..
