Dash rescued on 24th December 2010
Dash, a 12 week old male seal pup, was rescued on 24th December 2010 from Newlyn by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue team.
The pup was found to have nasal discharge and laboured breathing. Dash weighed 20kg upon arrival at the hospital and was prescribed noroclav, bisolvon, carprodyl, multi-vitamins and iron tablets.

Update: 28th December 2010 - Dash is still snuffly but is breathing well and quite lively. He is now learning to feed. When he is confident at catching fish we will introduce him to other seals. Dash is currently in the main hospital. Dash's flipper tag number is 27(white).
