How to Properly Raise a Pot Belly Pig

Although it may be trendy to own a pot belly pig, raising one can be quite the challenge. Unlike typical household pets, pot belly pigs can have a long life span. Therefore, you must be willing to make a long term commitment to ensure your pig is raised well.

If you choose to own a pot belly pig….

  • Check your local laws and ordinances to make sure your new pet is welcome in the area.
  • Buy pig feed containing 12-14 percent of protein, and give it to your pig twice a day.
  • Create a separate area for your pot belly pig, away from all other animals. Allow your pot belly pig to roam around in a safe, enclosed area.
  • Remember a pot bellied pig is like having a three year old – all the time!
