    We have two hogs that have developed swollen joints. We have been adding 40% supplemental feed to their diet and they seem to be doing a little better. They seem to get around ok to eat and drink and root around. Does anyone know anything about this and what we can do to cure them? Thanks!!

    Are these young pigs or older ones? We see swollen joints in young pre-weaned pigs from time to time & have no idea what causes it. We automatically cull them & do not sell them as breeders even if they recover as we do not want to to take the risk of it being genetic.

    They are young hogs, about 5 mo old. The sow’s previous litter was very healthy with no problems like this. So, yes, we will cull them. Thanks!

    We have several gilts that just turned up with distinctly swollen joints front and back knees equivalent….it progressively gets worse and then they don’t seem to get around. One is 4 months old, the other is 8 months old…..Anyone dealt with this, have thoughts on how to address?
