You say that the teacup pigs are delivered through Air how does this work and is it safe for the piglet?
2. Pampered Piglets said on 10/15/12 - 12:50AM
Hi Natalie, The teacup pig will be shipped out to an airline near you. Yes the teacup pigs are very safe. Because airlines are subject to large fines if an animal or pet is harmed in any way they go out of there way to make sure the little piggies are kept in a place that is comfortable and that has noise reduction so the little pig can just sit and relax while it is on it's journey to meet it's new family.
3. Mathias Bruefach said on 10/20/12 - 06:15PM
I have allergies to cats and dogs. Are teacup pigs hypo-allergenic?
4. Lisa said on 10/23/12 - 03:35PM
Will these teacup pigs co-mingle with cats and dogs? Will they grow to see the dogs and cats as family members? Sleeping together and hanging out together? How well do they handle being in their kennel when you need to leave the house for a few hours? Would you put a litter box in their kennel or would they be able to wait to be let out? Do they need yearly vaccinations? What kind of litter do you use in their box? Will they sleep through the night once they are put in their kennel? Do you recommend a yearly exam as part of a preventative health care plan? How well do they travel in the car? Thank you very much.

What is the normal life expectancy of a teacup pig?
6. Pampered Piglets said on 10/30/12 - 04:51PM
Hi Lisa, Will these teacup pigs co-mingle with cats and dogs? Yes our love our dogs and play with our puppies! Will they grow to see the dogs and cats as family members? Yes they will all bond together as long as your animals are friendly too. Sleeping together and hanging out together? Yes How well do they handle being in their kennel when you need to leave the house for a few hours? They are fine as long as they aren't just left in one for days. Would you put a litter box in their kennel or would they be able to wait to be let out? I would put one in just in case they need to go. Do they need yearly vaccinations? No they wont need yearly vaccinations. There are vitamins we recommend giving them What kind of litter do you use in their box? We use clay but make sure there is no fragrance. Will they sleep through the night once they are put in their kennel? Yes once you have a set bed time they do a good job of sleeping through the night. Do you recommend a yearly exam as part of a preventative health care plan? This is up to you. We usually just monitor their health and make sure they are healthy and doing fine. How well do they travel in the car? They travel well a lot of their new owners have them ride on their laps in the car.

where would you keep a teacup pig.(shed or house)
8. Jaden said on 11/22/12 - 11:46PM
Would you recommend a male or female? Which gender is more mellow? Which gender is more relaxed and cuddly?
9. Heather said on 12/5/12 - 03:37PM
Hi I'm from Hawaii and there are many laws on how to get an animal to Hawaii. Do those laws pertain to Teacup Pigs also?
10. Pampered Piglets said on 12/6/12 - 02:09PM
Sami~ Most people will keep their teacup pig in the house. They are fairly easy to litter box train
11. Pampered Piglets said on 12/6/12 - 02:11PM
Jaden~ Each teacup piglet will have a different personality. So both females and Males can both be mellow. Just depends on the individual pig.
12. Pampered Piglets said on 12/6/12 - 02:13PM
Heather~ We can help you ship the teacup pig to Hawaii. We should shipped a few there so we know exactly what is necessary.
13. Ashley said on 12/29/12 - 09:00PM
I was wondering do the teacups have to remain in quarateen for Australia I would hate to have to wait 6months? Also does free shipping include Australia?
14. Elizabeth said on 12/30/12 - 03:04PM
Can you ship a teacup pig to Canada? And how can I convince my parents to let me get one if I will be paying for it myself? (Besides mentioning how cute and friendly they are and how they can be good house pets)
15. TAJ said on 1/6/13 - 07:27PM
HOW do you find out about the regulations in your city ordinance for pigs etc...I'm looking at getting one soon, but want to make sure I look up the rules and regulations in my neighborhood. San Antonio, Tx Bexar County. And you guys did not answer if the piglets are hypo allergenic. we have both cat and dog allergies in our home. thanks
16. Dallas said on 1/11/13 - 08:59AM

17. Misha said on 2/4/13 - 09:28PM
Are these pigs legal as pets in all 50 states?iowa??
18. Hannah said on 2/5/13 - 05:32PM
What if I want a pig based more on a personality than looks? II would rather have a calm, laid back teacup pig than a hyper one.
19. Terrie said on 2/13/13 - 07:15PM
What is the life expectancy? Your site said you have piglets in my state but you are located in Utah. Is there a place in OK I can see them in person?
20. Brent said on 2/14/13 - 07:09PM
How are the pigs with stairs? I have a lot of stairs in my house.
21. Sara said on 3/4/13 - 05:30PM
Do you stil have Lu Lu available?????
22. Pampered Piglets said on 3/5/13 - 02:21AM
Misha You call and check with your local city and find out most places haven't had any problem with having teacup pigs
23. Pampered Piglets said on 3/5/13 - 02:23AM
Hannah- If you are wanting a teacup pigs based on personality give Karen a call she can help you find the right one for you.
24. Pampered Piglets said on 3/5/13 - 02:24AM
Terrie-The life expectancy is 15-20 years. We ship piglets out safe through airplane to all 50 states.
25. Pampered Piglets said on 3/5/13 - 02:25AM
Brent- The teacup pigs are fine with stairs they can be nervous at first but bribe them with a treat and they will get over their fear fast.
26. Pampered Piglets said on 3/5/13 - 02:26AM
Sarah- As of right now Lu Lu is still available but make sure you give Karen a call as soon as possible if you would like to reserve her
27. Rachel said on 4/3/13 - 07:32AM
So my family is interested in a teacup piglet. I've done tons of research and I understand that some breeders just want to scam their customers but according to your reviews Pampered piglets is a great choice. But we are going on Vacation in 3 months for 10 days and I'm wondering if we should hold off on the piggie until after we go on vacation or get the piggie now. Also are family Is busy at school and work for most of the day during the week UNTIL summer. So should we get the a pig now or later?
28. Pampered Piglets said on 4/3/13 - 12:29PM
Rachel, You can get the piglet as long as you have someone that you trust that can take care of the piglet the ten days you are on vacation. As far as school and work goes keep in mind having a teacup piglet isn't just a seasonal thing they will live 15-20 years. So as long as the piglet will have someone in the evening it can socialize with it will be fine.
29. Katie said on 7/30/13 - 12:36PM
I just read your previous comment, that as long as the piglet has some one during the evening to socialize with it will be ok. How many hours can you leave the piglet home alone? Would it help to leave the T.V. or radio on? I really want one but both my husband and I work so I hate to get it and leave it home alone all the time.
30. Jeremy said on 7/31/13 - 06:38PM
I'm finding no mention of any of these piglets being shipped out after being neutered or spayed. Given the difficulty of finding local veterinarians who will treat pigs, I could not accept a pig who hasn't been "fixed." There's nothing worse than a boar in heat--hostile, destructive, spraying foul smelling liquids all over the place.
31. Christine said on 8/12/13 - 07:09PM
I have a few questions. 1: Do the teacup pigs have to be litter box trained or can they be trained to go outside likes dogs. 2: Is it a good idea to get one even of I already have a dog and that does not like other animals? 3: How can I convince my parents to let me get on? My dad grew up having 2 potbelly pigs.
32. Cynthia said on 8/19/13 - 04:50PM
I was wondering if your piglet Gru is still available.
33. Pampered Piglets said on 8/19/13 - 05:03PM
Cynthia to my knowledge Gru is still available. I just help my mom out with the site though. It is best to call Karen at 801-376-5785 when you see a piglet you would like that way she can let you know if they are still available and how you can reserve one.
34. Pampered Piglets said on 8/19/13 - 05:09PM
Christine~ Teacup pigs can be litter box trained as well as trained to go outside. All our pigs get along very well with dogs but if your dog is aggressive or mean to other animals you would need to teach your dog to be tolerant of others animals. I would hate to see a cute little teacup piglet get harmed because a dog is aggressive or hates other animals. We get asked this a lot where children are wanting help convincing their parent's to get a teacup pig. The only thing I can recommend is showing them videos or reading stories about people who have teacup pigs. Just help educate them. They make great pets. After everything is said and done your parents know best what will work for your family.
35. Pampered Piglets said on 8/19/13 - 05:10PM
Jeremy~ If you need help having the teacup pig spayed or neutered are vet can do that.
