Good friends

Another new entry this lunchtime, from our very good friends at Upton Vets.

A young adult male hog, we have called Franklin, was taken in by a member of public after they found him on their lawn bleeding. The vets treated him for a bleeding foot, dehydration and wormed him.

We will keep him for rehabilitation and feed him up as he is a bit skinny, then he will be returned to the finders garden for release.

Bilbo Baggins

Bilbo Baggins had to pay a visit to the Vets today. She had one of her rear legs amputated by the emergency vets recently, due to having had it trapped somehow and in getting herself free had ripped part of the leg off.

The resulting wound was infected, despite a course of antibiotics, which has caused problems with the healing of the amputation wound.

Upton vets took her in today to clean up the wound and re-stitch it for us. The wound was flushed, debrided and lasered, then stitched up. Hopefully it will heal properly now, and Bilbo can get on with rehabilitation.

Thank you to Upton & Wareham Vets for taking care of Bilbo for us
