There are several reasons why a Dutch pig may not eat and still be low in energy:
1) gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is a common disease in Dutch pigs. Its typical symptoms are soft stools, diarrhea, loss of appetite and depression. The disease is more common in summer, spring and autumn, and less common in winter. It is usually caused by EScherichia coli and Salmonella, which originally exist in the intestines of Dutch pigs. When the immune system of Dutch pigs is weakened due to seasonal changes and dietary changes, these bacteria breed in the intestines and eventually lead to gastroenteritis. It is suggested to provide reasonable diet for Dutch pigs and clean drinking water for Dutch pigs, including drinking water fountain. When the season changes, the temperature difference between day and night varies greatly, and it is cold at night to keep warm.
2) Catch a cold. In the cold winter or at the turn of seasons, the temperature of the environment will be relatively low. If you do not pay attention to keep the Dutch pigs warm, it is easy to cause them to catch cold. It is suggested to pay more attention to the condition of the Dutch pigs at ordinary times, move them to a warmer place when it is cold, and place warm blankets in the nest.
3) Food. As herbivorous animals, the staple food of Dutch pigs is to provide a large amount of dry grass or fresh grass. If they eat fruits and vegetables containing more water, they will have diarrhea and abdominal distension. If they eat spinach, onion, leek, potato, cabbage, broccoli and banana, they will have diarrhea and abdominal distension. Dutch pigs can be poisoned by coffee and chocolate. Therefore, it is suggested to control the diet of Dutch pigs, do not feed the food harmful to Dutch pigs, and pay attention to the preservation and shelf life of food in the process of feeding, so as to avoid food mildew deterioration.
