Sick piglet

Post by Scharles45 » Sun Aug 09, 2020 5:51 pm

I do not have a show pig but a 3.5 month old pet pig
He started treatment for meningitis about a week and half ago he could walk stand eat or drink he got better but was still a little slow I was told it would take 4 to 6 weeks to make a full recovery he has been off penicillin exactly a week. Up until today he was walking eating rooting and doing pretty good. This morning was running a bad temp and breathing heavy and was very wobbly falling down. I cooled him down and vet said to start the penicillin again I started he is also I noticed today passing dark stools with a little bit if blood ulcer maybe?? I gave him mylanta. He has been back up walking and ate a egg and some cheerios would not eat pellets. Started penicillin again and a b12 shot. He is holding his head very low while standing.
