Finally, if your little teacup pig is in your guardianship; you need to care for it like small babies. They need perfect care and you need to give them cozy environment. They can grow in a healthy way if they are carefully undertaken during their early phases of life.
First time bathing the teacup pig requires a lot of concern for the baby pig. You can keep your hand under his chest to give its body a right support and keeping them still to give bath. The new baby should not be kept alone in tub or sink till they become a little independent. Use pet shampoo or bathing gel and scrub it very calmly on the body. They will become very supple and you will have to take care that it doesn’t slip or fall down.
Bathing is not easy in the beginning and you can easily do it by giving concentration on the animal. You can think of them like soft cotton elements and put them inside the sink. Keep the towel ready to dry them after bath. Make sure that you use warm water for the newborns to give them bath. After bath, the baby pigs might feel sleepy and you can pamper the pig like a baby. You should take care that you remove water from the back of ears and genital parts to keep the whole body dry. Moisturize the baby pig with pet lotion to get a clean look.
There are different products available for pig bathing. Some people use oil massage for the baby pigs before giving a bath. It eliminates dryness over the skin and makes the animal away from skin dullness. You can use coconut oil or olive oil for the same purpose. Newborns don’t require bathing on daily basis and can be bathed once or twice a week for maintaining cleanliness.
