So yesterday I was sitting inside and I heard my one pot belly pig screaming at the top of its lungs and would not stop. I looked out the window I was right beside at the time within the second I heard the scream and seen he was rolling on his back and it looked like he could not get up or flip himself over. I sprinted out of the house to help him. Now he is only 7 months old so he is still smaller than full grown. I tried flipping him over to get him on his feet but he was almost fighting me on flipping his body weight. During all of this he is still screaming at the top of his lungs so I stopped trying to move him and just tried to calm him down which he did. Now normally he is in with my other full grown pot belly pig but sometimes he escapes from him pen and likes to run around the yard doing pig things. I carried him back into his pen after he calmed down and just tried to figure out what is wrong. He started to shake and by this I mean his entire body. I rubbed his belly for a little and tried to look over his body to see if anything was wrong. No broken bones, no cuts, no swelling, no bruising, nothing. I figured to let him lay by himself for a little bit to relax him and check on him in a half hour. When I came back out he was on his side sleeping. I went to check over him again and when he opened his eyes he start to just grunt and turn his head half upside down and almost dig in into the dirt as if the floor was holding up his one side of the body. He was still shaking at this point but not as bad. He wants nothing to do with food or water which is not like him. I used a baby bottom to squeeze some water into him but it was not enough and he wanted nothing to do with that as well. This morning when I checked on him he was in the same state. He is not crying out in pain just shaking a little and has his body weirdly positioned. I have no idea what happened. One minute he was fine and the next this?
