Hi We-love-hoggies

Sorry to hear the little hog isn’t eating enough.

It might sound a bit strange, but sometimes experienced hog rescuers/rehabilitators know more about rehabilitating hogs than vets do. I have heard before about hogs being cared for in vets, where they haven’t thrived until it was suggested by a rehabilitator that they were checked for internal parasites and that has turned out to be the answer.

I would take stef’s suggestion seriously, if I were you, and get the little hog checked out again for lungworm and other internal parasites. She has a lot of experience in this field.

Good luck.
