Headed home. dr dan recommended we take herbie roo to texas a&m for surgical evaluation. we can only do this with the support of our mpfl family. i’ll be posting a fundraiser. initial vet evaluation will be about $1200 for mri and dr evaluation. i have no idea what surgery would cost or even if he’s a candidate! but i believe he deserves the chance!
Bandit received his freedom yesterday and has integrated with the yard crew of misfits. as a safety precaution every new pig that arrives goes through a process. our isolation process ensures not only the safety of the incoming pig but protects our herd. every intake receives vaccination before arriving along with a deworming/parasitic injection. once they arrive they’re placed into isolation to prevent nose to nose contact. after a couple weeks they’re allowed nose to nose but continue to meet friends through fencing to allow for the herd to adjust. introducing pigs is a challenge and one we take seriously to ensure the pigs aren’t hurt. slow integration and safety precautions allow us to protect our herd and our new pigren. #integration#rescuepigsofinstagram#pigsofinstagram#rescuesarethebest#snoutlife#ourrescuestory#safety#pigs#vaccineswork
