    Hi, I’m caring for 3 rescue hogs at the moment. One of them is eating and drinking well but I’m seeing very few signs of poo in the hutch. He’s gaining weight very quickly, now over 900g, but nothing seems to be coming out. I’ll call the rescue centre today but wondered if anyone else had experienced this problem and whether you have found any solutions? Thanks


    I’ve never heard of a hog that doesn’t poo! And I’ve dealt with hundreds. I’m guessing it’s getting mashed into it’s bedding.
    Either way how come a 900g hog is still in care? It should have been released unless it’s under medication. I suggest you cut it’s food down before it gets too fat to roll up


    My typo of writing 900g rather than 800g has made this sound worse than it was. His weight had increased significantly over the previous 3 days following the end of his medication and I found very little poo having gone through his nesting area twice. In any event he is going to be released on Wednesday, poo or not!
