Pot Bellied Pig Neutering

Neutering and spaying your pet pot bellied pig may sound crazy, but just like dogs and cats, pigs should be fixed for several health and other?reasons.

Pot bellied pigs can get cancerous tumors due to their reproductive hormones being intact over time, just like a dog or cat.? The males will also be more aggressive if not neutered from the testosterone in their system.

When neutering your pig you can also get the preputial diverticulum (scent gland) removed that holds a pretty foul smelling liquid.?

Anesthetic risks will always be there, but if done appropriately and if your pig is healthy enough for surgery, there isn't a reason why you shouldn't spay or neuter your pot bellied pig.
