Bilbo update

Little Bilbo is doing well after his amputation, he is eating well, and has done the all important post op poo and wee.

We are keeping him in the incubator for another night, just to be safe, and then he will be moved into one of our hospital cages.

He has a crackly chest, which we will monitor in case he develops pneumonia, and we will give him a course of treatment in the nebuliser to help with that.

Once recovered, he will go to a fully enclosed garden, where he can live as natural a life as possible, while still being supplement fed.
