The Pot-bellied pig has many fans. There are a large group of vaccines used in domestic pigs, which may be used safely in pot-bellied pigs, but most of them are not necessary with pet pot-bellied pigs. We typically vaccinate pot-bellied pigs for leptospirosis, a disease that affects the kidneys and may be transmitted to man or other animals. Parvo virus is also one recommended.
In Joplin, there are several additional reqirements listed.
Documentation of the pig truly being a pot-bellied pig in the form of papers from a pot-bellied pig registry or a statement from a veterinarian.
Tested and negative for Pseudorabies.
Tested and negative for Brucellosis.
Jannuary 1, 2009, requirements may be subject to change by the City of Joplin.
