Charlie’s droppings are now a little different (as of this morning). They’re no longer thin and stretched (some were not much thicker than pencil led). They’re a little clumpier than before. I don’t know if this is an improvement or a set back. I’d say it’s a similar texture –in terms of firmness.
Are there any tricks to mixing acidophilus powder with a liquid? Whenever I try it tends to just float on the top. It's like trying to get water to mix with oil. I know the easiest way to give it is by sprinkling it on veggies but Charlie won't eat them consistently. I could sit with him for hours trying to coax him into eating different favorites with probiotics on them and never succeed.

I am getting concerned now, because the poops are normally shaped (though a little small) but are completely tan with a slight orange tint.
My pig has pretty much stopped eating anything except the critical care now.
For those who have done long term syringe feeding, is this normal for the poop color?
(a lot cheaper, and not risking possible tummy discomfort/upset by changing feed)
But in my experience long-term syringe feed pigs Poos, pretty quickly take on the colour of the syringe paste,
Sometimes I will add juice from red pepper (C boost) and her Poo's quickly change accordingly
Though in some instances they tend to be slightly smaller than normal,
This is great thread, can't understand why it's hidden in general chat forum though, I would have thought such an important topic would have been put in the Medical Forum,
Has anybody thought to ask members from Australia about their pig Poo's??
Apparently as I understand it different feed protocols are recommended, and you don't seem to be able to get the variety dried food we do here in the UK, and in America,
How does it affect the poo??
