Weaners health
« on: October 30, 2021, 12:52:39 pm »
Silly question had pigs on and off for many years but not last 3 yrs.  I picked up two females last week put in huge barn open to outside loads of space.  When we first had them they were running around like mad.  Noticed last few days havent moved a lot.  Seem to be sleeping a lot.  Also noticed that one female had a bit of blood in the last of her urine.  Do I assume some kind of UTI but the other one urinated fine.  I cant remember how much sleeping they do - around 10 weeks.  What am I looking at and should a tiny tiny pinch of blood in urine be a worry?

Anything which isn't normal behaviour should be investigated. Obviously a new home is exciting but they should still be doing plenty of running about. Be a good idea to take temp as a start.

Have they had their jabs? With blood being passed i would personally ask a vet to take a look.
I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies. This is me!
