Inguinal Hernia

This little chap is Peter, he came to us after being spotted on a wildlife camera with a large lump on his side.
He was taken to Upton vets for them to have a look at, and it was discovered he had an Inguinal Hernia. He had an operation to repair the hernia yesterday, and came back to us this morning.
He will spend some time with us while he recuperates, and hopefully will make a full recovery.
Please note that he is covered in white ‘fluff’ as he decided to rip up and get inside the cage liner.
Our grateful thanks to the team at Upton vets.
