Teacup Cute Baby Pigs?

Thanks to social media outlets, celebrity pet pig parents, and countless TV shows and movies, micro-pigs have exploded in popularity over the last several years. Otherwise known as teacup or Juliana pigs, these little four-legged pets are not only roaming farms but living in homes now, too.

For some families, they’re the perfect pet ! Owning a pig, however, is entirely different than owning a cat or a dog.

New pig owners are often surprised to learn how much work and money pig ownership truly requires. Unfortunately, many people who purchase “teacuppigs are not prepared for them to grow into full-sized adolescents and adults. When the pigs grow too large, develop health problems, or display destructive behavior, they’re often surrendered to shelters or simply abandoned.

The bottom line? If you’re considering purchasing a pig, ensure you have plenty of space, plenty of patience, and the budget to keep him or her happy and healthy.

How much is a teacup piglet?

Those cute piglets can cost between $1,200 and $6,500 a pop and can weigh a whopping 200 pounds once they mature. While they may weigh nine ounces at birth, true miniature piglets can grow to an average 65 pounds when adults — not the promised maximum 25 pound weight guaranteed by some breeders.

Do teacup pigs stay small?

Teacup piglets — also called minipigs, micropigs and micro-mini-pigs — are small and adorable when young. However cute they are, they do not stay small when mature.

How long do teacup pigs stay small?

Typically, the size of a mini-pig may be estimated from the size of its parents. Mini-pigs reach about half their adult size and weight by one year of age but will continue to grow until four to five years of age.

What is the smallest breed of pig?

Mini pigs have experienced a surge in popularity over the past few years. But are mini pigs real? Mini pigs is a term used to encompass any smaller breed of pig, and is often substituted with other terms like micro-pigs, pocket pigs, and teacup pigs. They are not a distinct breed, but rather can be a variety of breeds and mixes of breeds that have been selectively bred to be smaller in size.

People soon discover that hobby farms and rescue groups have little or no capacity to take on more pigs. Zoning restrictions is one of the main reasons why pet pigs end up in search of a new home. Many pigs sold as pets are young, even newborn, and have yet to reach their full size and weight, which can be substantial.

While, in some ways, pigs are similar to dogs they can be house-trained, for instance they have other needs that are difficult to meet in a home setting. Pigs are very curious animals, and enjoy an environment where they can explore, root around with their snouts and manipulate objects. Pigs are best suited to an outdoor environment that provides them with lots of space to carry out these activities safely.

Outdoors, you will need to provide them with shelter, as pigs are susceptible to cold and hot temperature extremes. Many people are unaware that pigs dont sweat, they are prone to insect bites and parasites and they can get sunburnt. Appropriate fencing must be used to enclose their outdoor area, as pigs are very strong and can uproot it, push it over and even dig underneath it if not properly secured.

You will also need to consider protecting your pig from predators like coyotes, wolves, big cats, bears, or even loose dogs. One final thought to consider is how your pig will be housed and cared for while you are away from your home for extended periods of time. Dog and cat foods are NOT a good alternative to a quality feed formulated specifically for pigs.

Some websites state that feeding a pig a reduced amount of food each day will keep it small. If one were to feed their pig such a small amount of food, they would be starving it, resulting in many potential negative implications on its health, including malformed bones, poor hair coat, inadequate brain development and even death. Each pig should be fed a diet specific to its individual needs to ensure adequate health and body condition, Salumets says.

1. Is it legal?

Keeping farm animals within city limits is against the law in many municipalities. Many people get a mini pig only to later realize it’s not allowed in their city. These people are then faced with a choice: move or find a new home for their pig.“Pigs are not easy to place,” Salumets says. “People soon discover that hobby farms and rescue groups have little or no capacity to take on more pigs.” Zoning restrictions is one of the main reasons why pet pigs end up in search of a new home.

4. Are pigs compatible with other pets?

As with any pet, pigs may or may not get along with other animals in the household. In general, pigs and cats tend to live peacefully together. Dogs and pigs, on the other hand, are an unpredictable combination, mainly because dogs are a large predator species and pigs are naturally a prey species. This may lead to unwanted bullying of your pet pig.“Dogs have been known to attack pigs – even ones they have lived with for a while,” says Salumets. “Pigs can also behave aggressively towards dogs, especially when food is involved.” Interactions between the two should always be supervised.Though pigs may not get along with other pets, Salumets notes that they are very social animals and should be housed with other pigs.

5. Pig nutrition

Pigs are omnivores and need a balance of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fiber and carbohydrates. “Mini pig” feed can be purchased at feed stores, but it is not always easy to find, and the feed that pet pigs require is different from that of farm pigs.Pigs really enjoy a variety of vegetables and fruits in their diet. They can eat some human food scraps and leftovers as long as they are not spoiled or toxic to pigs. Just like in humans, some foods can cause digestive issues in pigs and some are more sensitive than others. Even if you are providing fresh produce for your pig, feeding your pig only human food is not ideal, as it is not guaranteed to meet all of their nutritional needs. It is important they still receive pig feed to ensure their nutritional requirements are being met. Dog and cat foods are NOT a good alternative to a quality feed formulated specifically for pigs.Pigs should always have access to water, and should be fed at least two or three times per day. Pot-bellied pigs consume a few pounds of food per day, but if your teacup pig turns out to be a farm-breed pig, you can expect it to consume as much as four to seven pounds of food per day.Information on the internet can be very incorrect in regards to feeding pigs. “Some websites state that feeding a pig a reduced amount of food each day will keep it small. But this may result in an underweight pig with developmental and health issues, as the genetics of the pig dictate its skeletal size, not the amount you feed it. If one were to feed their pig such a small amount of food, they would be starving it, resulting in many potential negative implications on its health, including malformed bones, poor hair coat, inadequate brain development and even death. Each pig should be fed a diet specific to its individual needs to ensure adequate health and body condition,” Salumets says.

8. How do you transport a pig?

Do you know how to humanely catch a pig and get it into a vehicle? Pigs, like humans, are susceptible to motion sickness and may become nauseous in a moving vehicle. Do you have a vehicle big enough to safely transport your pig, keeping in mind it might get dirty during the trip?Remember, at minimum, you must abide by the Canadian Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Farm Animals: Transportation. Transporting a pig in the trunk of a car or the back of a pickup truck would be unsafe, as would allowing the pig to move about freely inside a moving vehicle.

9. How do you train a pig?

Pigs can be taught like any other animal, in things such as house training, using positive reinforcement. Food rewards go a long way with pigs! However, unlike puppy classes for dogs, there are not a lot of options for pig training classes. This means you will need to be comfortable training your pig on your own. “Pigs are very intelligent animals, and owners must have experience with pigs and a good understanding of pig behaviour, learning theory and humane training methods in order to successfully house train them,” says Salumets. It is also important to realize that pig ‘accidents’ on the floor are much larger, messier and smellier than dogs.

10. Do pet pigs smell?

While pigs are clean animals and typically do not have a body odour, it’s important to know that pig manure is very smelly. Most people say it smells worse than horse or cow manure. In other words, expect a few complaints from the next door neighbours. Pigs can also be very vocal – another thing that won’t make you very popular if you live close to your neighbours.
