His bluish lips make it sound like he was maybe having heart issues. Poor piggie

That is what the rescue said.
I was talking to Anne tonight from the rescue,because I was so upset and she told me it is not my fault.The piggies were both a little overweight and she said he could of had a heart attack.She told me not to blame myself,because at least he was loved and spoiled and had room to run before he went.


See,if he had shown ANY signs of discomfort or anything,I would of took him right to the vet.But he was wheeking and eating and acting normal and like a happy piggy today before I went out.There didn't appear to be anything wrong with him.It was just so sudden and I am in shock...well,not so much now.But I was in shock.I am still quite upset.


Stuart seems to be okay,not grieving too badly.He is eating - so that is a good sign.I have had rats grieve so bad,they stopped eating.

I definitely feel your pain. I lost a foster about a month ago to a previously undiagnosed heart issue. He started acting weird on the way to his adoption, and I decided to put it off.

I called the e-vet, and they said to wait it out, since it sounded like it wasn't an emergency. The next morning he started having tiny seizures, and I went anyway and he was euthanized because they said he was on his way out. Apparently he'd had/was having a heart attack (by their best guess) and that's what was causing all the deep abdominal breathing.

Heart problems in pigs are tricky to pinpoint because it's hard to find vets with experience for them and it's difficult to pinpoint them since they don't always show up on x-rays.

Awwwww.Poor piggy.I am sorry.


What causes heart issues in pigs?
If there is any way to prevent them,that would be great - for Stuart.I am still learning when it comes to pigs,as I have only had 3 ever...and this is the first time this happened.I mean,that is if it was a heart thing.


Anyway I still feel terrible about the whole thing.

There's usually not a whole lot that causes them as long as you're feeding a good diet. I mean, obviously if they were eating nothing but birdseed and grossly overweight, that would contribute, but for the most part they seem to be caused either by congenital problems (problems with the way the heart is actually made) or simply have a genetic predisposition to it.
