How to Take Care of a Teacup Pig | Small Pets


Hello, my name is Jill Phillips, and I’m co-owner
of Squeals on Wheels, a traveling petting zoo and pony rides. My name is John Phillips. We have horses, miniature horses. We have miniature llamas and alpacas, chickens,
ducks. We have bearded dragons. Our website is www.squealsonwheels.us. Before bringing your new little piggy home,
it is important to piggy-proof your home just like you might for a toddler. These little ones can get into mischief because
they are so intelligent and so curious. So you want to hide the electrical cords,
pick up your toxic liquids and cleaners. They are smart enough to figure out how to
open up a refrigerator, so sometimes you have to put a lock actually on the refrigerator
if they are big enough to get to the base of it. So you have to look at the home from a pig’s
level and really make it a very safe place. We recommend that you start your little pig
in a small, confined area, so he or she can get used to the big change in their life which
is moving to your home. For our pigs, we provide miniature pig pellets
that are specifically made for mini pigs, not farm or large pigs. These pig pellets are well-balanced nutrition
for these little guys and girls. We also give them fresh vegetables and a little
bit of fruit, but mostly fresh vegetables. They like the leafy green ones. We also give them some hay for additional
fiber in their diet and always fresh water. They need to have constant access to fresh
water. Little piggies do not like to be picked up. They will tolerate it but you will usually
get a big squeal out of them. They like to have their four feet on the ground
or in your lap.

  1. Warning to everyone who wants a pig – unless you essentially starve them they will get absolutely MONSTROUS. There is no such thing as a truly small pig, they all become giant.

  2. hi my name is megan me and my mom are consindering getting a mini pig,we live in ohio by Akron/Canton area do you know were we can get one ours would mainly be inside thank you

  3. There is no such thing as a teacup pig, they won't stay small. It's a scam to trick people into thinking they won't grow big

  4. Thank you sooo much for the pig tips! But i have a question,If where I am moving is Super cold is the pig okay with it or should I buy a mini pig sweater? 😂

  5. How large did the pig in your arms get and do you know of a good truthful breeder i can get a mini pig from that will not get over 30 pounds

  6. You people are con artist, there is no such thing as mini pigs. They are just regular pigs that you starve to stunt their growth.

  7. TEACUP PIGS ARE UNDERFED POT BELLIED PIGS, DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU PLAN ON DISSING THE FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!

  8. Does anyone in the comment section even know how to use Google? Micro pigs literally don't even exist. These are regular pot belly pigs being STARVED in order to keep them tiny af. They will become malnourished, their growth becomes stunted and they'll be sickly and die in a handful of years most likely instead of living nearly 20 years like they should.
    Looking at their parents to see, "proof" means jack squat because these pigs can start breeding at 3 months. So the parents are babies, getting starved, you're being tricked, and the pig is silently suffering and will die…
    Arrest these lunatics and everyone else selling micro pigs and honestly if you're buying ANY pet without doing basic research on it society should prevent you from owning any pet forever. Likely you shouldn't breed with other humans as well.

  9. Oh my GOD those bearded dragons are so skinny do you guys even feed them or give them water the poor things you should go out of bisnes

  10. they make it seem like the pigs remain small to fool gullible people into buying them! Mini pigs range from 75 to 200 pounds! Don't be fooled by those who say otherwise; they just want your money and don't care for you or the animals.

  11. THERE IS NO SUCH FUCKING THING AS MICRO OR TEA CUP PIGS!

    they are literally just baby pigs. So sick of these fucking liars

  12. If they keep breeding them to be small; they will eventually be small. I can assume this has already been done for centuries, so yes, there are small pigs.

  13. There is no such thing as a tea cup. They are baby mini pigs. Any pig smaller than a farm pig is are minis. They will grow to the size between a very large dog and a giant dog. (80 pounds to more likely
    120-180 + pounds.

  14. Should have been followed up by how to take care of Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny – Because there's no such thing as a Tea Cup Pig. They Grow. A lot. Surprised they didnt recommend starving them so they stay small. Pygmy pigs exist – in Africa – and they are NOT suitable as a pet. And they get big too. SMFGDH

  15. There is no such thing as a tea cup pig. Please use your platform responsibly. There is only mini pigs (pot belly pigs) and farm pigs.

    Unethical breeders market piglets as tea cup pigs and when owners realise they have a mini pig they end up being re-homed.
