I hoped he had just twisted an ankle or something (do pigs have ankles?) or maybe a toenail got caught in the rug on the floor and pulled it a bit. So I put the boys back in their cages and left for about 5 hours. I just got back and Spot is still limping. Is it vet time or can you think of another reason he might be limping?
Again, other than not putting weight on his foot, he doesn´t seem to be in pain.
But he might have just twisted it or bumped it - if that´s the case it should be a bit better by tomorrow.
Spot´s a year and a half old; can arthritis set in that early? Also, it was a beautiful sunny day here, 70 F so I doubt it would be the weather.
pinta, do you think that´s a good call? Or should I get him to the vet immediately? I can take him to the vet today if necessary.
This always happens. Whenever I plan to leave town, something happens to Spot. Maybe he´s on to my travel plans and is trying to get me to stay... clever piggy.
Thanks for your reassurance pinta!
