Pig Scours

Postby FFAPigMom » Sun Dec 02, 2007 10:09 pm

Helping daughter raise 2 yorks for FFA project. Litter mates, changed food - 1 has scours. Other than giving Immodium what will help? He had "diaper" rash today from the acid..washed him and put on baby powder - seems to help...any ideas... :cry:

Have you gave it some Spectam. Another way is to feed it more feed than normal, to kind of counteract the scours. These two methods are the ones we use.

If you believe scours are from the feed change, I always use Pepto Bismol chewables, or try giving yogurt (with live cultures) or buttermilk. The live cultures really help the gut get to normal.

I kind of think he has bacteria since the litter mate is fine and only one has it bad...I am going to treat them both with Spectam and see if we can knock it out...thanks for all the tips...I am noting them all!

Have you wormed them lately? Might also add oat groats or lower the protein of the feed.
