A friend bought 3 piglets and dropped them off for me to raise (we'll split the feed costs in 3rds and I keep one pig).
The one pig has pretty goopy eyes, seems a tad congested and he came castrated and looked completely healed but he's now swelling. In good health otherwise, chases his buddies and I have seen him eating and drinking. Greedily snatched a couple cherry tomatoes from my hand before his buddies could get them this morning.
My Vet is out-of-town, I could call his backup but he'll insist on a visit and being in the middle of nowhere, I could buy 4 more piglets for just his farm call fee.
I'm guessing a shot of penicillin? We've got most of a bottle of it in the fridge at the barn. Was bought for an injured pony who had to be switched to a different antibiotic after receiving only 1 shot.
Any different suggestions or dosages? I don't know if the bottle gives dosage amounts, the piglet is slightly less than 50lbs.
