Set out some critical care to see if they will eat it. It's got tons of good stuff. Sprinkle it on wet veggies. Have a dish of watered down stuff.
Keep in mind that the body wrap also prevents her from chewing on herself.
Here are the photos. I hope I do this right.
The vet thinks that they will be ok. Thanks to all of the generous donations, I was able to get them some Torb, Bactrim, Dex, vetwrap, and Cavy Performance (they wouldn't eat the Cuisine and that's all I had).
We are working out a plan to get the females but I must move some of these pigs out of here first.

I'm so glad you got the feet wrapped. I can't even imagine how stressful that must have been, knowing they hurt and are so scared and tired and just pretty much done in. But it has to help in the long run. Just to protect those open sores. Jeez, it makes my skin crawl just to think about what those pigs must have been feeling.
Hang in there, Chary. There is a special place in heaven for angels like you.
I went to a human medical supply store to purchase it. The particular brand I mentioned was what my vet used and what I got at that store. For Nina's feet, it could be cut into smaller pieces (comes much larger).
Purchase of a telfa pad by a well known manufacturer at Walmarts was a waste of time, as once it is cut, the cover just floats around. This brand stays intact.
They look so pitiful with their little blue booties.
I talked to animal control today. The deputy sounded very sympathetic and referred to Jim as a "felony stupid." He wants to send an ac officer out there to have a look at the females.
Problem: ac goes out, Jim gets mad, won't give us pigs. AC can impound if they think it's bad enough (according to Jim the baby looks really bad now), or they can write him a notice to comply by taking them to the vet, or they can walk away and do nothing.
Flip side: we take pigs (their fate is uncertain even with us at this point), Jim's problem is solved, he buys more pets in the future....
What would you do?
