Came home tonight to find a piglet unable to move. Appears to be paralyzed. Healthy overall-one of 9 and larger than most. Any ideas?? Born Nov. 29th and weaned.

Check with your vet. I have been away from pigs for awhile but could be erysipelas? If so it is contagious to your other pigs, Treatable with the correct form of penicillin.

Did the piglet seem lathargick over the last few days? Kinda dull acting? It may just be low on iron. May need a shot of Iron. He may be anemic. A shot of good Antibiotic wouldn't hurt either. 1-2 cc of iron. .5 cc of antibiotic.
Check with a Vet to make sure.
