Vet check all clear, no parasites under scope. Balling up when first found but quite a pathetic attempt. Balling up better now that it is warm, trying hard to escape also. Eating but unfortunately not enough in my opinion, new batch of Ark food arriving tomorrow so hopefully that will help.

Vet estimates 6-7 weeks old, no other small hogs seen in the garden just big bruisers. Been in contact with local rescue also.

Currently have him inside with a snuggle heat disc and made a “nest” with shredded paper, kitchen roll and an old fleece hat all inside of a pillowcase.

Various foods ranging from Pedigree wet to Purina dry, any other ideas???
