This little chap is Arthur. He came to us a few weeks ago with a distal femoral fracture to one of his hind legs, and weighed in at only 233g, so a very late Autumn hoglet. X-rays showed that he had Metabolic Bone Disease, for which he has been receiving special supplements to try and reduce the calcium imbalance in his body.

He also tested positive for lungworm and gastrointestinal roundworm, which he has been treated for.

He is a very good eater, and is piling on the weight.

He is a firm favourite of the volunteers due to his easy-going, inquisitive nature, and he is not in the least bit camera shy.

He will be released back to where he was found in the Spring.
