Now this is a welcome sight - some new spine growth on Sita Smile Obviously the combination of abidec vitamins and evening primrose oil has helped.

Bramble arrived on 5/12 weighing just 273g and had mites, ringworm, fur loss & round worms and was really struggling. Luckily he was found curled up on someone's doorstep. Unfortunately his finder has moved house since so he couldnt go back there, but he has gone off to a wonderful new home today with Pam Jary, the lady behind Little Red Dog Photography from today's photoshoot. He now weights 985g.

Hawthorn has now returned to the wild. He arrived on the 16/11 after the finder's dog picked him up in their garden. Fortunately he had no injuries, but was only 191g, so far too small to survive hibernation. I treated him for roundworms which were preventing him from gaining weight, and he weighed in at 934g today. He's gone off with Sara Messenger from The Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group to be released in her garden.

Its been a week since Sita's spines started re-growing, and she's doing really well so far. The spines look normal and are right across her body. It will be several more weeks before she's clothed enough to go outside, but I'm really pleased with her. She is still as grumpy as ever though LOL!

Horace arrived 15/4/13 weighing 486g with ringworm & internal parasites. As he was thin rather than small I suspect he was born last year and had a tough hibernation. He was found curled up in a shed without any nest material after having been seen in daylight that morning. I soft released him my garden last night, weighing 741g.

Bracken the supermodel has left home Sad He arrived on the 19/11 weighing just 210g and suffering ringworm. He has gone back to his finder tonight weighing 945g where he has a custom built house waiting for him. The finder is keen to watch his activities and has a trailcam set up, so we might get further reports on him.

Fern arrived 6/11 at a mere 163g. I did manage to get her to an outside hutch to hibernate, and she woke up at the weekend. After a couple of days to restart her system, and now weighing 712g, I've opened the door of her run tonight so she is free to leave.

A month on after Sita started regrowing her spines following ringworm, and she nearly looks like a normal hog. I've moved both her & Bert Ainslie to outside hutches today. I also took a new patient in (#064 Tulip) with poss ringworm and gummy eyes, poss partially blind.

Yesterday's arrival 064 Tulip, found out in daylight - I'm treating for ringworm due to the bald nose, and a course of antibiotics to see if the eyes improve. The left is partially open but the right is completely closed. I'm also bathing them with saline daily. If they dont improve in a couple of days I'll be off to the vets. The good news is the poo sample is clear so far. She's a good size female so could be pregnant but its very hard to tell.

I found the unopened tube of eye cream for treating conjuctivitis & bacterial infections (I knew I had it somewhere!) so I started Tulip on that yesterday. Her eyelids are a little more open tonight, but I still cant see any evidence of eyeballs yets. So for the moment I think she is totally blind, but has obviously been coping quite well as she wasnt thin when she arrived (or she is heavily pregnant eek)

Tulip has been to see Liz at Rowe Veterinary Group today. She's going back on Wednesday for a pregnancy scan to see an anaethetic would be a good idea or not, to enable a closer look at her eye sockets. Tulip also briefly met Pam from Little Red Dog Photography who happened to be there too!

063 Rowan is now 600g and has just finished his de-wormers. I've checked one poo sample since and its clear, he should be able to go back to his finders next weekend.

Rowan's 2nd poo sample is clear so he can move to an outside run tomorrow. I've now found roundworms in Tulip's poo sample which I'm not suprised about, even though her first sample a couple of days ago was clear. At least I can proceed with treating this now.

Tulip is back from her pregnancy scan, and nothing has been found, so she'll going under anaesthetic next Friday to have a proper look at her eye sockets and sew them shut so no infection can develop from external dirt etc, ready for her eventual return to an safe enclosed garden.
