A couple of new entries;

1 x female juvenile hog, 278g. Found out in daytime, staggering around in circles. She was quite dehydrated and has an injury to the bridge of her nose and right eye.

I got quite a bit of pus out of the wound on her nose (you can see the swelling in the photo) and flushed it out, so it is nice and clean now. She has had subcutaneous fluids and is now in a cage with food and water.

1 x adult male hog, 578g. Out during daytime with lots of ticks on his face and head. He has broken spines and blood on him – I suspect he’s been grabbed by a dog as there are no apparent injuries to the hog (the blood is probably from the dogs mouth). We have removed several ticks, but there are still some to get off. He has had subcutaneous fluids for shock and dehydration and is now in a cage with food and water.

Pouches are a great way to make hedgehogs feel secure and with some hogs such as blind or highly stressed ones, fleece pockets can have a real calming effect on them.

Pikachu

Tiny Pikachu trying his first solids, a mix of Esbilac and Hills a/d. His teeth are now starting to appear.

He seemed more interested in the lid (off a small jar) at first, then seemed to realise the meat was there and was tasty 😀 He polished off the whole lot in the end.

This should mean we can go longer between feeds now, which Tracy will be happy about.

It’s nice holding them to feed them, but better when they can feed themselves.
