Gestational diabetes

Post by LazyRYhogs » Sat Jan 05, 2019 3:59 pm

Does anyone know if sows can get gestation diabetes? I have a sow who easily drinks twice as much water as everyone else. She has been getting 6 pounds of feed because she is always on the slim side. She is wormed every 6 weeks and is up to date on vaccinations. I probably wouldn't have noticed the excess drinking except for now we are packing water to heat buckets instead of her getting her water out of an automatic water.
