Although it’s important to keep your pot belly pig on a strict diet and feeding schedule so they do not become overweight, it’s good to have some healthy snacks around for your pig to enjoy if he or she is hungry between meals or if you want to teach him or her a new trick. Here are the top 5 best healthy snacks for your pot belly pig.
PB and Cheerios: Pot belly pigs love peanut butter and they are also very fond of Cheerios so the combination of both is unbeatable. Cheerios are also low in calories so you don’t have to feel guilty for feeding them to your pig. Roll some cheerios in peanut butter to form a small ball then serve.
Baked Cheese Crisps: Potbelly pigs love cheese but they shouldn’t have it in large amounts. Make cheese crisps by mixing plain dough in some light cheese. Cut into small squares and bake. You’re pot belly pig will go crazy for this bite size snack.
Popcorn: Unbuttered, unsalted air-popped popcorn is a great treat for your pot belly pig. They love the crunch and it’s a healthy, low-cal treat for them.
Bite-Size Shredded Wheat: These are great to use when training your pot belly pig. It’s a great low calorie reward.
Grapes: If you’re looking for a treat to feed your pot belly pig while you’re teaching him or her a new trick, grapes are a popular choice. Since fruit can be high in in calories from fructose, make sure you feed your piggy fruit in limited amounts.
A well-fed pot belly pig is a happy pot belly pig. Remember to make sure your pet has a well-balanced diet and gets plenty of exercise so he or she stays healthy.
