How do you feed a pot belly pig? You really need to know that this is the number one problem we see in pet pigs. If you don’t feed them right they can get obese. If you don’t feed them right they can become behaviorally disasters? Food is the key to everything you must feed them properly. Key, key to having a really good animal not only nice looking but also well behaved. They are several brands on the market that are specifically formulated for pet pigs use those and only use those. The livestock swine feed is inappropriate for pet pigs, this feed is formulated to get a big, quick and to market. Pot belly pig food is formulated to keep them healthy and to live a nice long life. The amount you feed is also very important. You don’t need a lot of food to maintain a healthy pig but I would say, rule of thumb is that you use one cup of food per day for the younger pigs and when they get a little older you are going to need to change that to two cups of pig food per day. But they don’t need a lot of fruits and vegetables. If you want to feed them some fruit or a little vegetable that’s fine. They can manage that, they can tolerate it. It won’t make them fat but they don’t need it. For healthy pot belly pigs you only need to feed them one to two cups per pig per day. It is very important here to talk about treats as well because people have a tendency to give their pigs a lot of treats.
