    We have 3 pigs that are about 3 months old. We started them on some pig starter and gradually introduced new foods to them along with their regular pig feed. I guess we must have given them something that upset their digestive systems because on has very loose stools and the other two have somewhat loose stools and their appetite is not nearly what it usually is. We only feed foods that are good enough for people to eat but maybe we just added too many new things too quickly. Can anyone give me a suggestion on what to give them to help them feel and get better?
    In the mean time, I am planning on just giving them their regular pig ration (feed in the bag).

    You can give them probiotics to get their bellies back on track. Tractor Supply sells a jar of the powdered for $8-$9. I always keep a jar handy.
    Also, give them some hay to eat. Pigs do better with fiber in their diets.
