Question health concern.....

we noticed a few days ago that hagrid has white stuff gunked up, well, i'm not exactly sure where, but in/on his hind quarters..... he's always scooted his booty then would run off and pop, but it's like whatever he's doin' is now gunked.

is that a gland thing (like dogs? Dugan scoots too. LOL) or is it....??? do boy pigs get yeast infections?

haven't had enough $ to go to vet, YET. it'll probly happen next week, but....was just interested in your thoughts. he seems to be eating and drinking and playing normal..... altho, it's hot here so he just lounges during play time...... stinker..... anyway.....

thanks

~beth

Have you checked to see if he is impacted. That is most likely not the case however just thought I would throw that in.

Sounds like crystals, or sludge coming from the bladder. He is trying to possibly form stones. I would definately get him checked by a vet though as anything mentioned (crystals, stones or sludge) is not something to let go.

Good luck, will keep him in my thoughts.
