Busy weekend

We have had a really busy weekend and Bank holiday, with several hogs with fly strike on their wounds that needed cleaning.

Amongst several hogs that came on was this female, who came in to us this evening after having been found out in daylight when the homeowner went out to see what his dog was barking at, and found her not moving.

She has a rattly chest and is a bit nasal, so very likely has a heavy lung worm burden. I will check a sample under the microscope to confirm, and if, as we suspect, she has lung worm, she will be treated.

We have named her Sally, after one of the new volunteer collection drivers from Wildlife in Need, who kindly collected her and dropped her off to us as we have been too busy to go ourselves.

Despite being very young, he knew right away the baby should not have been out on his own, so he picked him up and ran home to his mum.
