Further to this – I have had a lot of abandoned babies this year. The weather is causing a lot of problems for hogs as the mum’s are not managing to find enough food to feed themselves.
Once the babies start coming out during the daytime they get exhausted quickly and become a prime target for fly’s laying eggs.
In this heat you have a very small window to get the eggs off before they hatch It is alway’s worth contacting your local carer.
