    I have a pig that is about 5 months old. Up until 2 days ago he was always ready to eat and run around in play. Now all he does is lie around and only gets up once in awhile to nose his feed. He is driving the other pig crazy because she wants to romp around and compete with him for feed. Any suggestions as to what may be wrong? The only thing that is different from before is that I chopped up some sweet corn a couple of days ago and fed it to both of them. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Dan

    I've only seen it urinate. I will make an attempt to watch for it to have a b.m. tomorrow.
