We have a new pot belly pig as the newest member of our familly. she scratches her self alot and her skin looks very dry. Is there anything we could do or are we doing anything wrong for her skin to be more moisturised, tried vaseling intensive care but dont know how good it is for pigs. Also if you have any tips on piglets they would be appreciated.

I don't know much about Pot belly pigs although at one time thought of having one but space was an issue but knew of friends that had them and we use to visit them quite a bit. Cybervet may know what to do or try looking on the internet about pot belly pigs. We have just come out of Winter where it has been dry. I'll see what I can find and get back to you.
