WE HAD A LITTER 2 WEEKS AGO 8 BORN 8 STILL GOING
THEY ARE CROSS BETWEEN LARGE WHITE SOW AND PIETRAIN BOAR
1 OF THE PIGLETS HAS FLUID ALL OVER ITS BUM AREA FROM ONE SIDE OF ITS LEG ACROSS THE BUM AREA TO OTHER LEG. ITS ONLY AT THE BACK DOEST GO NEAR THE FRONT.
AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST THE SHAPE OF THE PIETRAIN BUT ITS GETTING BIGGER BY THE DAY.
ITS LIKE A SMALL WATER BAG
PIGLET IS FEEDING WELL AND NO OTHERS HAVE THIS PROBLEM
ANY IDEAS ??????????????????:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Yes, lance it at the base with a sow needle and drain the fluid out(do not cut it open with a scauple). If it fills up again, drain it again. After the second time it should go, but repeat it until it stays empty. Lance it at its base so it drains fully.
    And let us know how you go!!!!!!!:D
