Poor piggy was dropped by a visitor and became paralyzed in his hind legs We took him to the vet who said he still has feeling in his hind paws and might recover. This was 24 hrs ago and although he has recovered movement in one leg the other is still lame. We are keeping him quiet. He is eating only a little and is doing wees and poos but I am not hopeful of a full recovery. We have been told to go back to the vet on Tuesday. DD is devastated as are we all. Does anyone have any experience of these sorts of injuries? What's the prognosis? Please don'tflame.

Good to hear your pig is on the road to recovery.

They are fragile little things and it sounds like one of his nine lives has been lost .
But with lots of spoiling (though they view this as their Right not a Privilege) wink , he'll get there.

So glad to hear he is so much better, its great news.... They are tougher thsn you think but lots of intensive tlc works wonders.... I hadnt realised his leg was actually broken poor chap..lets hope he will be zapping around again soon smile
