Keeping Your Micro Pig Happy And Healthy

How to Keep Your Pig Satisfied and Healthy

If you were growing a pig for market, you would put it on full feed. However, a pet pig should remain on a regular feed schedule. Do not feed your pig between meals except for training treats, and then reduce the normal food ration by an amount equal to the quantity used in training, taking the extra exercise into consideration.

Your pig’s food should be:

  • High quality
  • High fiber
  • High volume
  • Low calorie

A pelleted feed especially formulated for micro pigs is available in some areas. If you are unable to obtain this food, you can substitute other feeds. Advanced technology has created some foods that are designed to create rapid and large growth. These foods are not recommended for micro pigs.
