Mini Pigs Frequently Asked Questions
Are your pigs Registered?
Our pigs are registered with the MPR (Miniature Pig Registry). If you Desire to get papers with your pig then those can be provided. Although Pet papers and breeder papers are different. When getting your paper they generally come after you have gotten your pig because your pig's name will go on his/her papers and will be registered as such. Once these papers have been sent out the name of your pig cannot change. For more information on MPR please visit www.miniaturepigregistry.com
What is the shipping costs and what does that include?
Shipping costs between $450 and $500 for one pig under 10 lbs, depending on what airline must be used. This costs covers tattooing, blood work, vet visits, health certificate, crate, airfare, and travel.
What shots does the pig come with?
The pig will not come with any shots. It is important that you check with your local vet about any shots that they would recommend for your area. We are not located in a hogging area so there are little to no diseases that our pigs could be exposed to and therefore our vet does not recommend us giving our piggies unnecessary shots. If you live in a hogging area or your vet knows of any pig diseases in the area then I would recommend having your vet give them just the needed precautionary shots.
How much is the deposit and how long is it good for?
Deposit is $200 nonrefundable to reserve a pig, this deposit is taken off the price of the pig. We can not hold a pig without a deposit. If you place a deposit on a future pig it is good for 2 years. Full payment of the pig must be made before they leave our property.
Are the pigs healthy?
Yes, we care to much about our reputation as a pig breeder to scar our name. Plus we pride ourselves as being breeders with integrity. If something were to happen to your pig down the road and the necropsy shows that it was bad breeding or genetics then we will take responsibility for that, but we would have to have a copy of the necropsy report. Also if being shipped then the pig will come with a health certificate stating that the pig was seen by a vet and deemed healthy. We also recommend that you take your pig to see your own vet, this allows you to have a 2nd opinion and it establishes a relationship with your vet.
