Updated: Oct 27

With the right tools and time you can become the best teacup piglet owner. Every animal takes responsibility and commitment. Here are some of the best ways to assure you raise your piglet with the upmost care.




What can I do to prepare for my piggy?


Here is what you need to make your piggy feel right at home. First, you can find a safe spot to place your playpen with a soft blanket, bed and potty pad in the corner or along the wall where you plan on keeping your pads. Playpens are recommended to keep your piggy safe and encourage good training for the first few months or while they are starting in a new environment.





Tip:

A soft silicone dog bowl prevents your pig from tipping it over with their neck. This keeps every meal clean and quiet.
