Hi P@tr1cKio

I think you should ring your nearest carer and explain the situation to them. If it smells that bad, the hog may have an injury which has become infected. You can get details of your nearest carers by ringing 01584 890801 (number also shown bottom left of this page). I believe you should be able to get the number out of hours by listening to the message and getting through to a volunteer.

Please ring a carer as a matter or urgency – if it is an infected wound, time is of the essence. But you can give more details to a carer and take their advice.

Good luck.
