Boris, a 3-year-old pet pig who hails from Rosewater, Australia, is about to get a brow lift – and it’s not for cosmetic reasons, the Portside Messenger reported.
The 550-pound family pet pig has been losing weight, and as a result, his excess skin is drooping over his eyes and now he can’t see.
Boris will be carried to the vet in his hometown by a horse float.
“We’ve had to let him put weight back on so he can see a bit,” said his owner, Graeme Cane.
When Cane and his wife Julie bought Boris, they were told he was a miniature breed and wouldn’t grow to be more than 132 pounds.
Boris was the runt of his litter – he used to walk under the belly of the Cane’s family dog, Boof.
