Mini Pig Collar Dangers
Mini pigs should only wear harnesses that have been designed specifically for their unique body shape. Collars can be extremely hazardous to pigs, even when worn for a short time.
Mini pigs have a thick neck and relatively narrow head. They tend to go into panic mode when startled or upset. The collar can easily slip off leaving a loose & panicked pig. If the collar is not loose enough to slip off, then it is tight enough to cause extreme dangers due to their unique anatomy.
Pigs are anatomically different than dogs, having only one jugular vein. On the other side of the neck is a blood sinus where the other jugular would be in other species. If the blood sinus is torn by a collar, then significant bleeding and even death can result. In addition, they have a very small and delicate trachea. This trachea can be collapsed by the pressure of a collar, resulting in choking or suffocation.
The best harnesses for mini pigs are designed in an A shape, having two secure buckles on the side. This allows the harness to be put on without picking up the pig’s feet or sticking anything over their head. One strap goes around their neck in front of their front legs. The other strap goes behind their front legs. Whether the top of the “A” points towards the head or the tail depends on the instructions of the specific harness designer and also the shape of your mini pig. Some pigs have thicker or thinner necks. Try both ways and see which way feels more comfortable and snug for your mini pig.
There are also “all in one” style harness & leads that will grow with your pig. Pig parents may find these more suitable for pigs that have been well trained and are accustomed to the feel of the harness around their body. For pigs that are comfortable in a harness, these one piece leads are very convient to put on put & last through growth spurts.
