Hi Gr8mums

That doesn’t sound good – the swollen leg – but you can only do your best. I really hope you manage to find the poor hog before flies start appearing – that might be too late to save the leg, or possibly the hog.

I can’t really think of any sensible suggestions. If the hog’s leg is that swollen, it must be feeling unwell, even though they often don’t show it, so hopefully it will turn up early tonight. Not that it will make any difference at all, but I will be ‘willing’ the hog to come to you for help at a reasonable time.

I know you have been trying your best for the hog. Staying up all night is real dedication. Really hope he turns up tonight, but if he doesn’t you know that you have done your best for him. We can’t always help them – much as we would like to and however hard we try.

Good luck.
