humph is very excited to have other pigs to play with but hes not being aggressive - only overly amorous - hes certainly not hogging the food or anything.
I´ve held Ggp a few times and he seems normal enough pooing etc, no injuries, no obvious signs of sickness - just overwhelmed when in the cage. I´m wondering if he may be better taken out of the mix and caged alone.
Its been a week now yet I never see him out of the roofing tile he hides under - when would I expect to see an improvement? Has anyone had a similar experience.
What was he like before you put them all together?
the rodent lady trimmed his remaining teeth and hell go back to see her in a week or two
The bottom teeth will grow up to meet the top teeth. As the top teeth grow, they will grind the bottom teeth back down to the correct length.
The teeth breaking off could indicate a C deficiency. Make sure he´s getting a C supplement until the teeth grow back.
im thinking of caging him seperately to make sure hes eating his chopped food - he fed from my hand esterday but not today. trouble is dont want to stress him out even more. humph is guarding him fiercely.
Sneakers, who I lost recently, used to put his head in the air for a chin scratch every time I walked past. We even have them used to all our noises - they don´t even flinch when my husband grinds coffee beans every morning!
Louise, may Gingerpig get braver every day!
