Drummer Update

This is little Drummer, who came in 5 days ago. He has a bad case of ringworm which is responding to treatment, and as you can see he looks a lot better than the photos we posted of him when he came in.

I have checked a faecal sample under the microscope, and this poor little guy has fluke and gastrointestinal worms too. He started treatment 4 days ago, and we hope he will be strong enough to pull through.

Good luck Drummer!
