Hygeine for Wild Hog (Pee Smells)
 
Hi everyone,

Our boy is getting bigger and weeing so, so much more than he has previously. I am changing the bedding twice a day, but as he's in it all night, he's started coughing again and smells soooooo strongly of wee.

I've tried bathing him, foot baths and wiping him down with baby wipes (low chemical as my daughter has chemical induced eczema). He still smells.

Is this a growing boy issue (as in he's developing his 'manly' smell) or can we do something to clean him without inducing stress. He's wild, so the vet thinks any form of bathing will cause heaps of stress.

Ideas please?

Thank you!!
