Hi guineapeeps, I'm here with a heavy heart and some serious concerns.
( Looooong long story...the details might be relevant though?Collapse )
So finally, after all that, on to my question: has anybody else been experiencing anything funny or unusual with KMS Hayloft pellets? I think we got this shipment of pellets 3ish months ago, in the same large quantity we always get, and we have never had any problems with the end of the batch producing any problems or being less enticing to the pigs.
As things are, I've been thrown into total reaction mode. I did a thorough cleaning and disinfecting on one of the cages, bathed the two survivors, and put them in there, where they seem to be getting along and will hopefully work well as permanent cagemates. I bought some different brand hay and pellets which I am giving to all the animals now as I refuse to take any chances, though at least in principle I think KMS Hayloft is more nutritious...? :\ I don't really know what else to do except to monitor everyone carefully...I'm so heartbroken by what is happening and I really just want to get to the bottom of this. I'm thinking I will also bring the pigs to the vet next week to get them checked out.
Do you think all of this could be related to their food? Or, if not the food, does anyone have any other idea of what might be happening to my animals?
Thanks so much for your time <3
