Very poorly hog

Another very poorly hog in this morning. An adult male, 828g, in from Wareham after being found out during the day. He has a massive wound on his back that was absolutely full of maggots.

He was given subcutaneous fluids and the maggots were treated with a special spray to kill them, then the maggots were removed with our suction machine.

The wound was given a thorough flushing and washed with antibacterial solution. He has had antibiotic and pain relief injections and is now in an ICU. He is not very responsive, and in a bad way.
