Pet pigs can be lovable, intelligent pets, but they need regular care to ensure that preventable problems do not occur. Hooves and tusks on these intelligent creatures grow at a notable speed and become a health issue if not taken care of properly. That's why our team at Care Pet Hospital and Resort is here to help your pig stay healthy and happy.
Our qualified veterinarians are trained to handle pig, goat, and sheep hoofs correctly. There is both hard and soft tissue, and trimming hoofs incorrectly can result in serious injury to the animal. Normally, hoofed animals aren't very keen to have anyone handling their feet. However, start with maintenance early, and even the most nervous animals will adjust very quickly to a hoof trimming. This allows for a straightforward examination of the hoofs with the pet staying relaxed. The hoofs are then trimmed, filed, and smoothed for a proper finish with a professional approach.
Pig Tusk Trimming
Every male pig needs its tusks trimmed on a regular basis. Our professional staff can file down the pig's tusks smoothly and safely. This ensures the pet remains healthy and doesn't injure itself or the pet owner with extended tusks that grow too long. Some pigs get a bit nervous and may require sedation to keep them safe and comfortable. It is possible to treat a pig without sedation, but the pet will have to be trained from a very young age to accomplish this efficiently. As a result, sedation tends to be a common practice with pig tusk trimming.
