I have a young mini-pig (he'll be about 8 months old when we're thinking of doing this). We're looking at taking a vacation in the future that would give us a chance to take him for walks on the beach. However, we're a little worried.
I know that sodium can be deadly for pigs. And what place has more sodium than the beach and ocean?! Our little guy loves to root everything, so I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up swallowing some dirt and water--which I know will be chalk full with salt.
Will this be alright for him at 8 months? Or is it a better idea to avoid the beach entirely? Is there an age we should wait for to take him to something like this?
