40 mins to eat 1 pound?

Post by 4Hmomma » Mon Feb 03, 2020 8:36 pm

We have a show pig who got super sick. Now we are having trouble putting weight on him. We have been putting the feed down, letting him eat, and taking it, in an attempt to get him to eat better. Tonight, it took him 40 mins to eat 1/2 pound of feed. He sits there and eats non stop, but does not make a dent in it. Any ideas?

May have an ulcer. Three new Honor Show Chow Showpig feeds that contain technology to help with this. Or, add High Octane Alleviate.
