Noticed a sound i believe to be of pain but i wanted to get some more opinions about it. Was letting my pigs try out some red peppers and see if they like it when snuggled on a fleece towel. Was able to get a phone close enough to get some good sound without startling him when i started hearing the sounds. when placed back, there was 3 pieces of good sized poops but squishable (read a bit down for more explanation). urine, i cant tell as the other pig also urinated and they were both faced the same direction.
A bit of background on him. He accidentally injured his eye and has been on enrofloxacin susp. (aka baytril) 0.45ml 2 times a day , ofloxacin opth solution 4 drops a day and metacam 0.45ml 2 times a day. saw the vet on nov 7th.
Already seen allot of improvement in his eye. Not blue anymore. There was a hint of blue in the middle of his eye yesterday (nov 9) but today (nov 10) it is a dark shiny eye. I have been decreasing the dosage mostly on the antibiotics as improvements started and the fact that i know how heavy it is on pig's stomach in the first place. the only one i would give 2 times a day was metacam (one in the morning and one before bed) as the eye injury turned into an ulcer and i know how painful they are. baytril i gave 2 times for 2 days straight ( one in the afternoon and one at night) but turned it into once a day since nov 9.
Appetite is like a horse as normal. still as active as always. my most active pig and comes out on his own for hay and water. has always eaten all his veggies exept green peppers. he has always liked it but to a certain amount.
I believe it may be when pooping or urinating. since i noticed both pig's poops come out as good size pellets but they arent as firm. they keep the roundness but if you try and squich them, they collapse rather easy then the slight resistance you get from a normal poop.
Today i changed the way i give them lettuce. would give both half each every morning. now i got 1 half and cut that half in half, gave the same amount to both to see if there is any improvement. the other half would be given around the afternoon.
