The Pot-bellied pig has lost the popularity that they had in the end of last century, yet there are still many pot-bellied fans out there. There are a large group of vaccines used in domestic pigs. While all of these may be used safely in pot-bellied pigs, most of them are not necessary with pot-bellied pigs kept as pets. We typically vaccinate pot-bellied pigs for leptospirosis, a disease that affects the kidneys and may be transmitted to man or other animals.
