Have You Always Wanted A Pet Pig?

Micro Mini pigs have become popular for a great number of reasons.  Due to their intelligence, they make amazing pets. They are also very affectionate and loving. Mini pigs are very clean and have very few health problems. These non-allergenic creatures do not shed and are not likely to get fleas or ticks. Micro Mini pigs love to run and play and because they have a non-aggressive personality usually get along great with other pets. They are great with children and make outstanding pets when given the proper loving home. If you are thinking about keeping a pig as a pet, please carefully consider whether your home and garden environment will allow for you to properly cater to its needs. Potential owners should make sure they have the time, finances, and facilities required, as well as a veterinarian lined up to provide proper care.

Tips on Bringing Home Your Baby Micro Mini Pig 

It's so exciting to bring home your new baby mini pig.  Here are a few tips to make your experience in getting to know your piglet be a pleasurable experience.  

+ All piglets may seem a little scared since everything is still new to them, but this is perfectly normal. Just hold your baby close and cuddle him/her while talking in soft, calm voice. Your baby micro pig should settle right down and come to love its new home and family.  

+  For good bonding, it is recommended that you hold your baby pig and let them eat treats and piggy food from your hands. As the days pass, your baby pig will come to love and trust you more and more.  

+  Provide your piglet with dry, well ventilated but draft-free housing. They will need dry bedding. You may want to plan ahead and prepare a nice, comfy bed with furry blankets for your baby. They love to snuggle and cover themselves in soft blankets. I recommend a child's playpen or pack n play for your piglet's safe home. Put their litter box in one end and their bedding in the other end. 

+  An exercise or play pen is also recommended for your baby instead of allowing them to roam freely in your  home until the piglet is about 3 months old.  Using an enclosed area will aid in keeping their litter box training in place. When the piglet is older, he or she will not need to go to the litter box as often as when they are a very young baby.

Feeding Your Micro Mini Pig

One of the most important things to remember is NOT to overfeed your mini pig. A 25 pound adult pig will need 1/4 cup of mini pig food morning and evening with a lunch of veggies or some fruit.   MiniPigs4Sale provides the proper nutrition and quality vet care for our pigs. Pigs are not inbred or underfed in order to keep their small size. Our Micro Mini Pigs begin with a nutritionally balanced diet. When they are ready for adoption, you will need to have complete mini pig food and treats. As the weeks pass, begin introducing your baby to veggies and fruits. Keep in mind that these mini pigs are very tiny and do not require much food. Remember, that pigs will continue to eat even when they are not really hungry. When you first get your new baby, only give him/her a quarter cup of piggy food in the morning and a quarter cup in the evening. For snacks, they can have some veggies and fruits. It is very important to have fresh water on hand at all times. Also, NEVER feed dog or cat food to your mini pig. Be sure to feed him/her food that is made to promote their proper digestion and good health.

Be sure to avoid chocolate, avocados and salt...very toxic. 

Remember to limit treats and their eating. They will not stop eating on their own.  Pigs can get extremely unhealthy if they become overweight.

Bath Time for Your Mini Pig

Just like cats and dogs, your mini pig will need to be bathed. I recommend using baby soaps and shampoos that will not burn their skin or eyes. Baby lotions and cream oils can also be used to help moisturize their skin. You can even clean their ears with Q-tips. Don't be afraid to let your mini pig run around and play in the grass or dirt. They love rolling around in the green grass and rooting in the dirt. This is good and healthy for them...and they can always be cleaned with a good bath.

Nap Time for Your Micro Mini Pig

Some pigs sleep more than others. It really depends on their individual pig's metabolism. Burrowing in soft blankets or a pet pet is a favorite thing for a pig.  They also like to curl up and nap with any other pets you may have.  

Training Your Micro Mini Pig

We train our piglets to use a litter box. You can also train them to go outside after you have your piglet home.  Be sure to use a litter pan that is easy for them to crawl into and out of. We recommend using pine pellets instead of cat litter or cedar shavings which are toxic to pigs.

You may even use puppy pads for training. However, litter training is one of the easiest and fastest things your baby pig will learn in just a few days. They also like to potty in the same spot and that is what makes then so quickly trainable. Make sure your baby knows where the litter pan is and it is important for it always to be in the same location and not moved around the home.  

Always keep litter area away from food. Pigs do not like to use the bathroom where they eat.

Train your mini pig to walk with a harness and leash. This is probably the most important “trick” he can learn. It will certainly come in handy by giving you control over his actions when moving him from your home. The next thing you will need to consider is if your pig is larger, you will want to train him to walk up a ramp so you can get him into a vehicle. Just think of trying to move an uncooperative pig to transport him when time is of the essence.  


Your Pet Pig’s Disaster Preparedness Kit

Are you prepared for your mini pig's well-being in a disaster? Should an emergency occur, are you ready to feed and care for your pet pig for 1-2 weeks? Making a disaster kit with all necessary items such as food, water, medications, paperwork, veterinary records, photos, etc. is a good place to start. In addition, have information available in case your pet gets separated from you. Hopefully no disaster will occur, but if something should happen, be prepared to keep your pet safe and healthy until the emergency is over and/or you can be reunited with your pet. A disaster doesn't have to be disastrous. Be aware that if you find you must leave your home, there are no shelters that will accept a pig. Have a plan in place to shelter out of the area at a friend’s or relative’s home so you will not be faced with the decision to leave your mini pig behind.  

Food One-to-two-week supply of dry mini pig food your pet usually eats. (While stored, make sure to replace the food according to expiration dates.) Also include a spoon and food. Record your pet’s eating habits (amount and times) and keep the record with the other paperwork in this kit. Store the food in a waterproof and protective bag or case.
Water One-to-two-week supply in gallon-sized plastic containers. (Make sure to replace stored water regularly to ensure freshness.) Include a collapsible or travel water bowl that is easy to store.
Cleaning Supplies To clean crates/litter boxes.
Pine Pellet Litter One-to-two-week supply plus a plastic litter box and litter scoop. You can opt for disposable litter boxes that come pre-made with litter.
Paperwork
Photographs In case you need to distribute pictures if your pet gets lost.
Vaccine Records/Medical History Copies of important veterinary documents, such as vaccination records, medical history, medical conditions, records of important test results.
Veterinary Information Write down the name, address and phone number of your vet and an alternate vet. Write out a release statement, authorizing medical treatments for your pet. Write down your pet insurance policy number, if you have one.
Proof of Ownership/Animal Information Copies of registration information, adoption papers, proof of purchase, microchip, tattoo or other identification information.
List of Emergency Contacts
Medication  Include dose and frequency for each medication. Keep a two-week reserve supply, with directions on how to administer. If possible, keep the medication in the original jar or bottle that it came in. Replace according to expiration dates. 
Spare Harnesses and Leashes
Bedding or Pet Blankets
Identification Tags If possible, have the ability to write your temporary location or contact information on the tags.
Brushes/Combs, Grooming Supplies
Toys
Animal Crates or Carriers Label with your contact information; make sure the animal has room to move around and it is safe for the pig (latches and bolts should be secure).
Pet First-Aid Kit 
• Pet Identification. Identify your mini pig at all times with harness tags or a microchip. Tags should display your name, telephone number and an emergency contact. Having your mini pig microchiped is a secure means of assuring that your pet is identified via an electronic device that is painlessly implanted in your pet’s shoulder area. Since animals may escape during disasters, permanent identification will increase your chances of retrieving your pig.
• Evacuation Supplies. Be prepared for emergency evacuation by having pet carriers on-hand and in an accessible place near the front door.


For your mini pig, keep an extra harness and leash hanging near the front door where friends or neighbors can find it,  especially since a frightened pigog may slip away if held only by the collar.

Affix a pet evacuation sticker on your front door or on the front door of your refrigerator indicating the number of pets residing in your household and an emergency contact number in case the animals must be removed without your knowledge. Without this, rescuers may not be aware that there are animals in the home, particularly in the case of cats that may hide when frightened.

Inform your landlord, neighbors, friends and relatives that you have pets in your home that may need their care in the case of an emergency. Make sure that at least two individuals have keys to your home and are familiar with your pets. Consider starting a “buddy system” in your neighborhood to ensure that someone will check on your animals in a disaster, and agree to do the same for them.

Identify several possible locations where you can take your pet(s) if you need to evacuate your home.

And, before disaster strikes, contact your veterinarian to see if he/she has a disaster plan. Know where you can take your animal for medical attention in the event that it becomes necessary due to a disaster.
