uncontrollable chewing

Post by wrighjl22 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:12 pm

Young showpig seems to be chewing uncontrollably. He didn't eat this evening and about two hours later his jaw is chewing constantly even when there is nothing in it. So far nobody I have talked to has ever seen it. Any ideas out there?

Without seeing him all can do is guess. To me it sounds like he might have something stuck in his mouth like a sliver and is trying to get it out and it is causing him discomfort. Just a guess
