    I just had a litter of pigs last night/very early this morning (always seems to happen that way) One of the little girls seems to be having problems urinating/pooping. Her little girl parts (not sure what to call it....vulva?) seems to be sticking out farther than it should and is redder than I think it should be. What could be the problem and is there anything I should do?

    It's not unusual for a sow piglet to have what appears to be an enlarged vulva and it will be very raw looking. It shouldn't stop it from carrying out it's bodily functions. Have you checked that it has an anus?

    I think you will find that she will be fine.

    Cheers,
