Carrollwood vet helps piggy in pain

Carrollwood, Florida -- The staff at BluePearl Veterinary Partners literally had their hands full with a 170 pound patient that show up recently for treatment at their facility at 3000 Busch Lake Boulevard in Carrollwood.

Brando, a 16-year-old Pot-bellied pig, was having trouble getting up and down his little piggy legs.

The staff at BluePearl usually treat cats and dogs but they also handle exotics.

Brando's Land 'O Lakes owners took him to the animal hospital to see if the staff could figure out what was causing their beloved pet so much pain.

BluePearl staff gave the sickly swine a full exam complete with X-rays and determined their porker patient was suffering from arthritis.

Brando was sent home with some medications which is expected to significantly improve his quality of life.
