Treat stuffing toy for enrichment
The Knot Ball pillow is a fun way to keep your mini pig active. Slide a couple treats inside the knot and watch the self fueled excercise extravaganza.
Treat options are only limited to your imagination. Choose healthy treats in moderation. Dry treats are best since the knot ball is a fabric pillow. Cheerios, frosted mini wheats, dried banana chips, AMPA Mini Pig Trail Mix, Sharp’s Mini PIg Food and treats are all great options.
The Knot Ball pillow may be available at your local Walmart store or through online retailers. These pillows will be found in the home section, and repurposed for our pampered pets! A quick Google search for “knot ball pillow” brings up a variety of sellers of similar pillows in different sizes, colors, and materials.
As with most food dispensing toys, your mini pig may get a little excited. Be sure breakables are out of reach in case the Knot Ball is tossed around. Luckily, the pillow is very soft and serves as a pleasant indoor toy, putting the pigs natural foraging skills to work.
