we have weaned the piglets today (3.5 weeks old)  They are taking small amounts of creep feed and were giving them milk three times a day. 

Mum is now eating banana and spinach smoothies and is also eating the spinach "raw".  She is still vomiting when eating and drinking, not every-time and never the full amount as she has eaten. 

We did see a slight improvement after the Tetroxy (but this could be because she was as high as a kite on a plethora of drugs) so might try her on a second dose.

Thanks for the update. I'm always interested to learn about new things like this so i can be better at my job.

Hopefully the sow gets better although i think it'll be a long recovery. Good to hear the piglets are taking to the creep feed. You'll be surprised just how much they can scoff once they get going.
I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies. This is me!
