Spaying Chloe the Teacup Pig

Spaying a PigThis is Chloe the pet teacup pig. She is under anesthesia, and having a IV catheter placed in her ear prior to being spayed. We also monitored her temperature, pulse, respiration, heart rhythm, blood pressure, and oxygenation during surgery. She did great, and was up and having breakfast soon afterwards.

Pigs that are not spayed or neutered develop unpleasant behaviors and habits. Unneutered males are smelly and can be quite aggressive. Unspayed female pigs go into heat every three weeks, and get terribly cranky in the process. We recommend spaying and neutering all pot-bellied and teacup pigs that won’t be used for breeding.

    AAWWW Chloe. I’ve been there and done that. Don’t remember much of it because I was so young. I have seen my little scars though and asked mom about them. She told me they were love scars so I’m down with that. Thanks for being so good to us piggies. XOXO – Bacon
