I'm sorry. My pigs and I had not a good Time tougether- and I told you not, what was happening. But now 8 are still alive, all pig are looking like old pigs.
We have sent the next dead pig to the University of Munich. The found Klebsilla pneumonia and that the pig had a sepsis. They didn't know, what was happening at the beginning. Doxycycline was right and we have eaten it for 3 mounth. one Month I had to do handfeeding 8 pigs. I had a discopathie. I had enough time to do it.
Thank you so mutch- you are very kind

Thank you for the update. I am glad you got a diagnosis. I hope the guinea pigs that made it improve more. I would consider that perhaps in their weakened state while being treated, they may have developed parasites. Perhaps your vet could check them for parasites like mites.

Thank you.
My exotic vet has looked for parasites, he didn'd found any.
he told me: A Sepsis hurts the hole body and perhaps some of it will stay.
He has seen the pigs last month. he said he have to be glad,for the reason, I have lost only 4 pigs.

Parasites can not always be identified. Read over this page in its entirety and see if anything applies.

update
i have lost 3 pigs since my last post. all died like old pigs. My exotic vet told me, I have not to adopt first a baby or very old pig. on ths reason I have adopted a 1 year old girl. she is staying healthy. one mounth later I adopten 2 one year old girls and all pigs are staying healthy. Now my vet told me , it is no risk to adopt old and young pigs. I am very glad

Thank you. The new pigs are running and popcorning. My old pigs are sleeping a lot. I am glad to see them all. I know, my old pigs will go in the next years. on this reason i am glad to see them staying alive now.

So Glad all is now better! give older pigs loads of cuddles and maybe give the soft bedding like vet/dry bedding or fleece blankets? I too am sorry for your losses. RIP wee ones. When you see a star shining extra bright I like to think that the star is my piggies smiling down at me. Sending big hugs! Wishing you better times with all your piggies. Hope they give you much joy and happiness for a long time!
