Hi I had a thread a couple of weeks back 'poorly pig' my little boy seemed on the brink. He has since improved but suddenly I am concerned regarding his weight again. He weighs approx 850g tonight he was 838g popped him on the grass for 15 minutes he is now 851g. Since reading that weight is a good starting point to health I have maybe become a little obsessive. He seems fine eating and drinking. My only other indicator is he rarely lies down (chilled out on side) more huddles!?
Do I need to return to the vets or is this an ok weight if he seems okay? If his weight continues to fall is this likely to be serious as he has only just had teeth done.
sorry for rambling

I have just found a lump on his neck phoned vets got appointment tomorrow at 10. Really want to find a specialist vet rather than companion care at pets at home. East Midlands area if anyone can help in that field too.

Try to stay calm. Animals are hardier than we give them credit for. Then again I would probably react the same to my piggies 😂
