I have a potbellied pig around 16-years old. She makes poop

Customer Question

I have a potbellied pig around 16-years old. She makes poop but I sometimes have to help you to push it out. She has always had some problems with pooping. I feed her a pot bellied pig food and when I put lots of water in it she eats it good. She doesn't get up and move a lot because she has a bit of arthritis. I give her mineral oil a couple of times a week, about a table spoon or so. Should I be giving her anything else.
