Potbellied Pig Veterinary Care in Cumming GA

Sawnee Animal Hospital is experienced at treating potbellied pigs.  Potbellied Pigs are playful, intelligent, affectionate pets, but they require specialized veterinary care to remain healthy.  Choosing an experienced veterinarian to treat your potbellied pig is important in your pet’s overall health and wellness care.  If you have any questions about caring for a potbellied pig, please give us a call prior to acquiring your pet.

Please bring your potbellied pig to us as soon as you acquire your pet.  We would like to establish a relationship with you and your pet early so that we can be sure your pet is healthy and to have baseline health records should your potbellied pig become ill or in a crisis situation. 

Annual Wellness Exams for Potbellied Pigs

All pets, including potbellied pigs, need an annual wellness exam to ensure their health.  Your pet’s wellness exam is a good time to talk to Dr. Esbeck about any concerns you have regarding your potbellied pig.  During the exam, Dr. Esbeck will examine your pet’s teeth, ears, eyes and skin for any signs of illness.  He may recommend additional testing to diagnose possible illness.  He will also discuss with you any vaccinations your pig may need. 

Skin and Hoof Care

We diagnose and treat any skin or hoof problem your potbellied pig may be experiencing.  Potbellied pigs need hoof care and trimming to prevent splitting, overgrowth and infection.  Potbellied pigs can get skin diseases.  If you notice your pig scratching or having an excess of dry, flaky skin or red patches or lesions, please bring your pet in for an examination.  Skin issues are often uncomfortable for potbellied pigs, and proper treatment will make your potbellied pig feel better.

Veterinary Emergencies

We treat all types of emergencies during normal business hours.  In addition, Dr. Esbeck is available by cell phone after hours for established clients to assist them with any emergency your potbellied pig may be experiencing.

Training your Potbellied Pig

Potbellied pigs are intelligent animals and a well-trained potbellied pig will be easier to care for, especially when you visit us.  If you have any questions about training your potbellied pig, please give us a call.  We have many suggestions on ways you can train your pig so that visiting us is an enjoyable experience for both you and your potbellied pig.
