Andrea Looney, D.V.M., answers questions relating to pets and animals including whether to give a puppy present, what is causing that calcium imbalance in your sows, and whether or not it is safe to feed your animals chocolate.
A puppy present should only be given after careful consideration and consultation.
A sow who is seen sitting near weaning time likely has a calcium imbalance which can be easily fixed.

Do not feed any animals chocolate since it will often make them too hyper and stimulated.
