I cleaned out my hairbrush this morning and waded it up into a ball and set it on the end table (yah, I know...bad habits die hard). Some time during the day it fell into my solo pig's cage (he's currently in quarantine awaiting a lady friend). The only problem....there's only a third of what was there this morning and it has little green wet chunks on it....

I've never had this happen before and have no clue what to do, if anything. I have very long, thick hair btw. He's acting completely normal and peppy as always and took his vitamin c biscuit with gusto. He's drinking and eating hay and pellets.

I assume he nibbled on it throughout the day. Since they grind their food pretty good I'm thinking there isn't an issue. However, the amount that was eaten is a lot. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks :)

And got the T-shirt

Just watch to make sure he continues to eat and poop. If not, vet ASAP.
