The I-pig now needs a tooth out and a scale and polish. Is he having any problems eating asked th vet - obviously not I said seeing as he's 6 kilos!

A few days ago it started to lose its leaves, so I'm wondering if it is now dying. Can somebody advise me if we can still save it, and if yes, what should we do? Or alternatively, if we buy a new
