I just got 2, 10 week old female piglet about 5 days ago and today I noticed Her back legs will give out and she will squeal and then get back up and just walk around again, but she isn't running with the other one. She is eating and drinking. Also the other female seems to have diarah off and on too.. Really new to this please help. So frustrated !!!!

    What are you feeding these pigs. A pig of a certain age should be on a certain diet, especially at 10 weeks of age??
    As to the pig which keeps falling down may pay to give it a shot of antibiotics as it is possible it may be the on set of a foot infection?? Could give it a long acting penicillin and see how it goes??
