Dog attack

This hog has been the victim of a dog attack last night (by a large dog), and came to us this morning. It has several large puncture wounds and the top of it’s scalp has been ripped off in a big flap.

The hog is currently at Emergency Vetcare to check for internal injuries, and we have concerns for the hogs pelvis and back.

We will update when we have more info from EVC.

Trapped in a net

This hog came to us after being trapped in pond netting and was partially submerged in the pond.

It was cut out of the netting and brought home to cut away the rest of the netting. The hog was very cold, so was placed on a heat pad while I cut it free.

It was given subcutaneous fluids for shock and dehydration, and it was placed in one of the ICU’s to warm up.

There were no obvious signs of injury, so it will be released once it’s had time to recover from the shock of it’s ordeal.
