Hi Nic, thank you for your reply and apologies for my delayed “thank you” note. Since crisis started it has been hectic at work and I couldn’t join the Forum. I hope you are well.
I just wanted to update that we continued observing the itchy hog over some weeks and now it doesn’t have that itchiness any longer!
Unfortunately the contact to rehabilitation centre came as no answer (two different contacts by email). I think as you said, it would have been the case of coming back from hibernation with lots of ticks but now they’re gone.
So a happy and hopefully healthy hog around every night!
Thank you as always!
