As you already know it is very hard to find some useful information about mini pigs on the Internet, especially something written by a person who actually owns one.But now, there is a man who decided to change that. His name is Elliot Lang.
A few days ago I bought a book with a very promising title - Teacup pigs, Micro pigs, Miniature pigs, The Complete Owner’s Guide by Elliot Lang.
It is a must have guide for anyone passionate about owning, breeding, or raising miniature pigs.
As soon as I got the book I started to read and didn’t give up until I read the whole book, and then I read it again. It is well written and easy to read. Like a brother or a close friend, the author takes you and guides you through the whole process of owning a mini pig.
He teaches you how to find out if a teacup pig is a right kind of pet for you, how to find a respectful breeder and how to pick a right piglet. There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done if you want to become an owner, and Elliot gives a great explanation about that.
The book includes the following:
- History of mini pigs (general facts, size and temperament)
- Is a mini pig a right choice for you ( pros and cons )
- Choosing a mini pig (finding a breeder, multiple pigs or not…)
- Bringing your mini pig home ( the permits, preparing your home, moving your mini pig, arriving home, shopping list )
- Daily care
- Senior mini pigs (how to take care of your mini pig when he gets old )
- Common pig terms
I certainly learned a lot from this book and I can honestly recommend it to anyone interested in mini pigs. It is a common practice to name pros and cons when writing a review of a book or any other product on the market, but in this case I have to skip that because I really can’t find any cons.
If you decide to buy this book please write a comment here. I would really like to know what you think about it.
