temperature of newborn pig?

Asked April 21, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

what is the internal temperature of a 3 day old pig supposed to be? i would like to take her temperature but she might be constipated, was told to give her a little rice cereal with the goat milk in bottle at night to help sleep throught the night. i put just a little and she might be fine but i haven't seen her poop yet today.

The normal range for a pig is 101.6 to 103.6 F. After birth the pigs temperature will drop briefly then should recover. I have attached a link to comfort zone levels for pigs as well. http://www.ipic.iastate.edu/publications/210.EnvironmentalPigNeeds.pdf
