Do micro pigs get on with dogs?

Petpiggies are frequently asked ''Do micro pigs get along with dogs?''

The answer is ''Yes, in the vast majority of cases micro pigs and dogs get on very well'' however there can be no guarantee as would be the case when introducing any new pet to your home.

Much will depend on the temperament of the animals involved and the careful introduction of the newcomer to existing pets in the household.

Below are pictures of both adult & young micro pigs with Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

Stunning micro pig pictures....

...well we think so!

We took these photographs of some of our baby micro pigs today when they were out playing in a rare spell of sunshine.

We love them and hope you do too.

Bathing a micro pig

Micro pigs are extremely clean and would not generally require bathing.

If  you do wish to give your piggy a bath or shower here are a few tips:

1) Always use a non slip matt to ensure your piggy doesn't slip and injure itself

2) Micro pigs naturally have dry skin, use a Lanolin based or non degreasing shampoo

3) Place a few treats in the bath or shower, perhaps a few pieces of carrot, to help keep your piggy interested and to make bath times exciting.

Anyone for tennis?
