I dont file my own nails😂 I only file Holly's because then I can keep them short without needing to try cut them, which is worse than trying to bath her😂
I also found the smaller area you use for baths the more stressed they are and the more they dislike it.
Most people bath their hogs in their bath(obviously in shallow water) as its less streseful for the hog and the human !!
I dont have a bath though. I have showers, and tiny sinks. So the next time I need to bath Holly (I have no idea when that time may come, likely months away) I'm going to block the drain on the shower and then see how she is that way. Worth a try right ??
