But anyway-we can argue forever, if something helps lower bacteria level i will thanks to dog vets checking urines samples when i bring it-i will know exactly what did.
And i have bussy summer ahead of me, so i wont be online much..i am on exit door from exoticc and other vet stuff and all that, so i aint too worried, Irie s enjoying life, he already reached remarkable age..i am just grateful for all good times i got to spend with all our legendary animals...and wish all pigs on other topics the best!!:).
However i am writing this cause of front teeth that cause us problems in so called old age..upper tooth was repaired three times last year(clipped by vet-i know its not the best method but it seemed onlysuitable option in that situation).. so both upper teeth are in wierd position but that s not problem.It doesnt affect his eating. PRoblem is i noticed he had mouth very slightly open all the time, we checked and his lower tooth are overgrown.. HE is wild pig in very positive way, biting on his cage, running around, but he does that all his life and it was never an issue...however..i wouldnt be too concerned at all if mouth would be closed.
Since its not..i dont know..we can go to this risky clipping of lower tooth as well, but i dont like the idea. Cant he close mouth, or doesnt want to?
He is chewing great..he eats everything-its logical as upper tooth was repaired repeatedly lower started causing problems...
What would you do? How long can he wait..? Can we change this with tons of grass and some wooden things..we re already trying..
Depsite he is nearly 8 we re still as determinated as we ever was with anybody of our gang-thats why i am asking you for some dental advices mainly-as for urine bacterial stuff we have plan already..you can confirm if it seems okay:). I wont go on holiday as i have too much work(job) so is better for Irie and Ziggy, anyway..

A good suitable hay would also help with this. My vet use to do Jessie's teeth only using gas to knock her out and whiffs when she started waking up and she lived to just over 8 years and like your vet she was a dog/cat and wild life vet. You need teeth looked at as tongue could also get trapped by over grown teeth. Good luck.
Some vets can do teeth while pet is awake. For me I don't recommend this as piggies are wigglers and it is a delicate job. Piggies mouths are so small I think better when they are relaxed.
From my experience i am almost positive its the front tooth(is obviously), cause our legendary warrior Lee(he lived up to be 6(even a few months older) lived with maloccusion of back tooth-he didnt care too much<3he was doglike not pigike in character, but his condition was described as severe and required surgeries(grinding with anasthesia)...but his front tooth were never that bad...and he had other signs(!).
Iries front tooth are kind of awful if i am right if he got it clipped he should be able to close mouth straight away, but all needs togo welland that what worries us....we re thinking about goin on 6.6. or 13.6.but i dont know..if anyone had anything else to say.. this method is available to us; anasthesia free for front tooth:
