My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I am sorry for the wait but there have not been any large animal Vets on. I would like to assist. How is Porky doing? I am going to suggest to continue what you are doing. You can bring Porky into the Bathroom that is steamy to aid with breathing. For Nasal congestion you can use Pediatric Saline drops by Little Noses. The problem with respiratory issues in Pigs it can be caused by a combination of bacteria, so getting the correct Antibiotic that will treat the problem. I have to urge having Porky seen by a Vet for hands on care.
