I just yesterday was given a very fat pot bellied pig. This poor boar is supposedly 4 years old. He is so fat he can't hardly walk or stand up. My husband said that the lady that "rescued" him had given him a shot of penicillin, supposedly for an infection of some sort, but she has gone out of town. He said that the pig just walked into the big dog cage that he took to get the pig in and then when he got him home, we had a great deal of trouble getting him out of the cage and into the pen we have for him. We have some straw for bedding in there for him as well. He used to eat purina dog chow, all he wanted, all the time. Which of course is why he is so fat. My question is, today, Harley (we decided to call him Harley Hawg for my sister who rides a Hawg) has been laying down, most of the day, hasn't touched his food and hasn't drank any water. I don't know him well enough to know if this is normal behavior, if he is stressed because of the move, and just refusing to eat, or if there is truly something wrong with this boy. He acts like he could be mean. I think he was abused, along with being over stuffed. Any opinions here on what to do? Our local vet is not that familiar with these pigs and is a little leery of treating an animal that he's so unsure about (he's an older vet). Is Harley doomed, or is it just a matter of waiting for him to get calm? Any help would truly be appreciated.
