    I have a hog not a potbelly, she is 13 wks old, I don't know if I can answer your questions, but we've had her since 3 wks old, so I'll give it a try

    We've had two, at different times, unfortunately one passed due to an enlarged heart & the other from cancer. They came to us because their owner no longer wanted them so we didn't get them as babies.
    Someday I would love to have a piglet, they are just so darn cute!

    Thanks Madonna. I found a vet and he is coming tomorrow for her 1st set of shots, and in 3 weeks he will administer a porcine rabies vacc, it's going to cost my boyfriend an arm and a leg lol. But worth it, I want my little Callie as healthy as possible.
