Hi Scratch

It’s lovely to hear about the progress of the hoglets. Thanks for letting us know about their antics. One will often be more adventurous than another, but it’s always interesting to see. You are so lucky having the chance to watch them growing up. Yes, you’re right – they do grow incredibly quickly, but that means that, hopefully, they will be a good size before hibernation time.

I’m slightly worried about the hoglet the dog found. Do you know if the dog had it in its mouth? If it did it could easily have a puncture hole – which are incredibly difficult to find if you aren’t used it. If the dog did have the hoglet in its mouth, it would be a good idea to contact a hog rescue as it might need an antibiotic. You can get contact details by ringing the number bottom left of this page. A hog carer/rehabilitator would be able to advise. Fingers crossed the dog only barked and didn’t bite!

Good luck to all the hogs and hoglets.
