Miniature Pot-Bellied Pigs originated in the jungles of China and Vietnam and were introduced to the United States as pets around 1985. Since that time, the Miniature Pot-Bellied Pig has achieved an ever growing popularity among pet owners through its general cleanliness, intelligence, and unique appearance.
Brush with a soft bristle brush daily. Miniature Pot-Bellied Pigs are usually odor-free so frequent bathing is not necessary. Use only mild or hypoallergenic shampoos when bathing. Trim hooves regularly. Male Miniature Pot-Bellied Pigs will require regular tusk trimming.
