DeBary mini pig named Petals struggling to stay alive

A DeBary mini pig named Petals is struggling to stay alive.

Donations are flowing into a GoFundme account to help pay for the baby porker’s soaring medical bills.

The piggy’s parents hope the cash will come in quickly to save their newest family member.

“She’s not just a pig, she’s family, now,” Kari PTF said in a post. “The kids adore her, she cuddles , and is smart as can be . Any help might just save her life !”

Eight-week-old Petals has an enlarged heart and pneumonia, Kari PTF wrote.

One night, Petals went into extreme distress, gasping for air and struggling for breath.

“We managed to get her to an animal hospital that accepted exotic pets in the nick of time . They immediately began critical care emergency life saving treatments.”

The latest update: The pig needs to go to Gainesville to visit a University of Florida veterinarian for a heart exam before fluid fills her lungs again.

“This test is $400-$600 plus any medication needed to keep her going . The news stinks , by isn’t unmanageable !”
