Therapy pigs bring joy to patients at TGH
TAMPA – We’ve all heard of therapy dogs, but patients at Tampa General Hospital got a visit from a different kind of therapy animal. The so-called ThunderBolt Therapy Pigs brought joy to some patients staying in the TGH pediatric unit. Thunder and Blot underwent about nine months of training to become certified therapy animals. Their trainer is only 10-years-old, but she’s already doing a lot of good for a lot of people. “People get so excited, no matter if they’re an adult or a kid, they just start smiling,” the pigs’ trainer, Claire Barrow told FOX 13 News. “It’s nice to see it because they are going through a very hard time and it’s nice to see a smile on their face.” Since becoming certified therapy pigs, Thunder, Bolt, and Claire have visited patients and hospitals and nursing homes. Claire’s mom runs High-Risk Hope – an organization dedicated to helping mom with premature babies in the NICU. And with her pigs, Claire is becoming the next generation to bring hope to those who need it.

Coccidiosis occurs when piglets ingest coccidial oocysts from the farrowing pen surroundings, usually carried over from a previous litter. There are different types of coccidia, much like there are different types of bacteria or different breeds of dogs. The type responsible for causing disease in newborn piglets is called Isospora suis.2. The most common symptom of coccidiosis is yellow to grey, watery/pasty diarrhea occurring in piglets 8-15 days in age.3,4 It is important to remember that some piglets that may be infected with low numbers of coccidia will show very few signs of disease but still can have gut damage and will shed infected oocysts into the farrowing pen environment. Infected piglets can develop a rough hair coat, become dehydrated and experience weight loss. As a pork producer, you may suspect coccidiosis when you notice pasty scours in nursing piglets accompanied by irregular growth and uneven weaning weights in a litter.
