Advice on pot bellied pigs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We are considering getting a pot bellied pig and I want to obtain as much information as possible before we do. I wanted to know what some of the common problems are and solutions, what kind of temperment do they have, what are the common health problems etc.

 

I'd appreciate any advice.

Common problem is people over fed them and obesity leads to many problems. Otherwise they are very easy to keep.

Thanks for responding.

 

How often should they be fed and apart from vegetables and fruits, what is the best food for them?

I just checked on amazon.com.  There are quite a number of books available on the care and training of potbelly pigs. If you look there you can find any one of several books that will answer all your questions and tell you how to properly feed and care for your piggy.
