One of Oscar’s favorite ways to eat dinner is from his treat ball. The first time we put food in the ball, it took him a little while to figure out how to get the pellets out. Now, he’s a pro and loves rolling the ball around until he gets every last bite out. Along with feeding him in his ball pit, the treat ball is another fun way to keep our mini pig stimulated and challenged.
We use the IQ Treat Ball and love it. We simply put his food pellets in the treat ball, set the opening to the desired width (which is adjustable each time), and set it down for him to roll around.
Here is a video of Oscar rolling the ball around to get his dinner out. We realized he was so excited to get the food out that he was sliding around on the floor too much, so now we only give him the treat ball if he’s in his play pen or on carpet where he has more traction to avoid hurting his little legs.

how old did he have to be to use the food ball
We started giving him the food ball when he was about 3 months old. I’m not sure if there’s an age that’s best for it, as long as they’re eating solid food of course and being supervised around the food ball. Otherwise, my guess is it’s just up to your judgment on when is best. 🙂
