Hi Sarah k, one thing to say is that freshly weaned hoglets do look tiny – and can weigh typically between 150-200gms on leaving mum, which looks very small. the good news is that if she or he is eating your wet food then its definitely weaned and they do put on weight very quickly once they find a good and regular food source. so my advice would be, if the little dot is turning up regularly and doesn’t appear to be in any state of ill health or distress I would just keep offering good quality food and fresh water and keep a monitoring eye. the fact you have other hogs in the area is a good sign too. It may be an only survivor from a litter – or perhaps you may see more turning up once word is out that there is some food on the go. Fingers crossed for you and little dot.
