I am sure you will be keeping things clean and keeping an eye on her. Companionship is important (and fungus is ever present).

Ditto Lynx. Keep them together and just keep a close eye on them. If you see more fungal develop -- just use the cream(s). It is ever-present, especially in summer.

Update for the girls, nutmeg is growing hair back on the skin that's exposed for her eye yay(happy dance) and Chestnut ear is better keeping an eye out on each one of them and cleaning out the cage frequently

Chestnut small poops but is drinking a lot of water and gets water intake through her veggies also. Can small poop indicate anything else besides dehydration?

When a pig is dehydrated, the poops are usually dry and cracked. That's more of an indicator to me of dehydration than the size of the pellets.

Is something going on that makes you worry about the pellet size?

Oh ok i wasnt sure bpatters im a new piggy owner and was just wondering because her poops used to be a decent size now they are smaller not dry still wet just like normal poops so i wasnt sure if she wasnt getting enough water so i stayed home from work all day to monitor her drinking and she drinks well

Stayed home from work to monitor her drinking? For a pig that wasn't ill? You may need a chill pill. :-) There'll be times in the life of your pig when you may need to stay home to hand-feed or nebulize or whatever, but watching a non-sick pig drink isn't one of them.

Smaller droppings can indicate a lower food intake. How's her weight doing?

I felt a hard bump under her chin my husband said its been there ever since she was brought ght home at 3 months sadly i never noticed it until today. Her teeth arent over grown from what i can tell and she hasnt loss any weight shes actually gained 2 ounces and no loss of appetite. What do you think it can be?

Don't know. You could ask the vet his/her opinion the next time she sees him.

Does it cause her any pain if you touch it?

How old is she now?
