Pot-belled or miniature pigs are interesting, complex animals that are sometimes kept as pets in urban areas. Unfortunately, there are many misleading claims associated with miniature pet pigs that can eventually lead to these animals being surrendered to shelters or rescues by owners that “leapt before they looked”. Although it is always important to educate oneself before bringing an exotic pet into the home, this is never more true than with the pot-bellied pig. Use this client education material to review the challenges of pet pig care, then refer to LafeberVet’s basic care handout for advice on managing a pet pig.
