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.
We had an emergency entry this afternoon, a hog had been trapped in netting in a garden. The finder spent 1.5 hours cutting it free and then gave us a call for help.
Tracy collected the hog, and phoned me whilst on the way home to get fluids and fly strike cleaning kit out.
The hog is in a bad way, massively dehydrated and has constriction wounds, plus a deep wound all under her neck, which is infected and full of fly strike.
