TLC-40 Advance Intensive Care Unit / Recovery Unit

This past year has seen unprecedented numbers of orphan, sick and injured hogs coming through our doors.

Some young babies come in with their eyes still closed, and need hand rearing, and keeping warm. We have been using heated mats up to now, but these do not provide the all round heat and controlled humidity that an ICU unit will do. We can also fit a nebuliser and/or oxygen supply to the incubator, making it even more versatile.

The incubators provide a warm, clean, quiet, safe and reliable haven for these orphaned baby animals – especially for tiny babies who aren’t yet old enough to retain their own heat. Many young babies need extra help to survive in those early days and a safe, secure, controlled environment gives them the best chance to recover and thrive.

We would dearly like two or more of these incubators, but have only started the fund raising for one, as we hope this will make it more achievable.

Your donations will be put to good use, providing the equipment we need to offer the best care possible to these wonderful and endangered creatures.
