Missing foot

We had this little chap brought in last night, after he found it on a building site.

This poor little hog has a foot missing, so he was taken straight to the vet, who are keeping him in over the weekend to stabilise him before deciding on Monday whether to amputate his leg or not.

Either way, he will come back to us for convalescence, and as he only weighed 383g, we will keep him until he is fit and well and can be released.

Trapped in a net

This hog came to us after being trapped in pond netting and was partially submerged in the pond.

It was cut out of the netting and brought home to cut away the rest of the netting. The hog was very cold, so was placed on a heat pad while I cut it free.

It was given subcutaneous fluids for shock and dehydration, and it was placed in one of the ICU’s to warm up.

There were no obvious signs of injury, so it will be released once it’s had time to recover from the shock of it’s ordeal.
