Bacterial Infection in Pigs

I read about a distressing situation on the permies forum that I visit regularly (permies.com).  I think it’s important to pass on anecdotes like this so we all can identify what’s going on in our animals.  In this case, the issue was a pig with a bacterial infection.

I’m not going to blog about it though.  The owner has already done that.  Here are the links…

I’m pleased to say that I got a report that Miss Avocado is doing much better.  She’s running around and accepting treats.

I’ll update this page if I see a follow up post about Miss Avocado.

I can’t say how much I’m grateful for people who post about issues like this.  It can save heartache for others.
