“Esther the Wonder Pig” is having a great recovery!
Esther the Wonder Pig looks like she’ll be making a full recovery! Following a week-long stint in a hospital that is coming to a close, the popular Facebook pig is on her way to healthier days. Esther is a full size farm hog who lives in Ontario with her human dads, Steve and Derek. The partners, after adopting from a friend what they were told was a “micro pig,” have founded a sanctuary and openly promote veganism on Esther’s website. She’s a perfect ambassador in a world where people usually only care about animals if they’re small, compact, and fit their idea of “cute.”
The Ontario Veterinary College treated Esther for a common toe infection, an ailment that is frequently seen in pigs. Esther’s dads have tirelessly kept fans updated on social media, posting detailed updates, a live feed and chat with Esther and family, and of course, tons of photos os Esther exploring the medical facility and playing with lots of toys.
Good luck, Esther, and we can’t wait for you to be home! Your 700 pounds of sweetness are proof that ALL animals deserve peaceful lives.
