Caring for a Micro pig
During your visit we will advise on dietary requirements for your Micro pig
Micro pigs must have plenty of fresh clean water at all times.
Access to the outside should be available at all times.
Micro pigs should be wormed every 6 months
Check your garden for plants that may be toxic to Micro pigs, these include Yew trees & hedges
Keep your Micro pig away from swimming pools or any deep water
Register with a local vet
Firstly you'll require a life long commitment to caring for your Micro pig.
Next you must obtain a CPH (Council Parish Holding) number before buying or keeping a Micro pig.
A CPH number can be obtained free of charge by contacting the RPA (Rural Payments Agency) on 0845 603 7777
In preparation for your Micro pig you should have a securely fenced outdoor enclosure of at least 36 sq metres, the bigger the better, and draught free waterproof housing i.e. large dog kennel or small pig ark.
You will also need feed and water bowls and a supply of Barley straw.
