I have two pigs. One has been a bit listless the past 2-3 days. Both are pretty uninterested in eating which is alarming. They have been raised outdoors. Living quarters is a calf hutch. They are 5 months old. Only one large vet in the area will come out and wants $200 just to show up! I am worried he'll just throw an antibiotic at them and call it a day. I can do that on my own, but haven't been successful in finding advice on the matter. It should probably be noted that I did switch feeds about a week or so ago. Any thoughts? Advice? Would love to chat with someone by phone if possible. Thanks Jess 4402257538
