- And got the T-shirt
How old is she? Mature sows sometimes develop ovarian cysts which can cause PMS-like symptoms. See http://www.guinealynx.info/ovarian_cysts.html for more info.
P.S. Throw out the igloos or cut another hole in them. They're just invitations for one pig to trap another, and they have terrible ventilation. No hidey in a pig's cage should only have one door.
According to their previous owner (I got them for free from someone on Craigslist) they are "about two years old". I am hoping that the vet will be able to confirm that or at least give me a fairly approximate age guess. She sees exotic animals quite frequently and from what I've heard/read she is excellent and extremely knowledgeable about piggies especially!
P.S. I've been all over these forums for over a month lol, but just now officially joined today. Do you know if there is there a way for me to "tag" another member when I am posting a reply?
Also, bpatters, I forgot to mention that I am planning to cut a hole in the back of each of their igloos for that very reason. My super handy husband will have to help though so we can make sure the edges aren't sharp enough to harm their inhabitants!
The girls seemed to be behaving better when I got home last night. I took them both out (separately) for prolonged lap time on the couch to give them a break from each other. A few tiny halfhearted popcorns from Tara this morning before work, but she looked so silly doing it I just laughed. Before I left for the day I spread their hay into several piles around their cage, so hopefully Bamboo can munch in peace throughout the day today.
