Pigs and Dogs: A Recipe for Disaster

Dogs remain one of the most common household companions, and as miniature pigs grow in popularity as pets, the question invariably comes up:  how might dogs and pigs get along in the same household?  This client education handout reviews normal predator (pack) versus prey (herd) behavior, as well as the significant risk for pet pigs when they are left unsupervised with dogs. This client education handout was awarded first place in the 2021 inaugural Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV) Veterinary Technology Student Client Education Materials Contest, sponsored by Lafeber Company.

Download the PDF version of this client education handout, or modify the DOCX version for your veterinary hospital.
