Facial injury

Another entry tonight, adult male hog, 565g. Has an injury to the left side of his face and snout. Luckily no flystrike. Also very flat from dehydration.

He was given s/c fluids and had the wound cleaned, followed by a topical application of an antibacterial barrier cream. He is now in a cage with a heat pad, food and water.

Hopefully being so dehydrated doesn’t cause any organ damage/failure, and he’ll make a full recovery.

Button

Button was brought to us after being found collapsed on a driveway. She was taken to the Vets as we are very concerned for her.

It is possible that she has some brain trauma, and we will have to wait and see how that develops.
