Davy - Rescued on 20th January 2008

Davy On the 20th of January 2008 we received a call about a pup in Port Issac. We sent out some volunteers who live in the area and when they located the pup they called us at the Sanctuary, where we told them to bring it in. At the Sanctuary, the pup was put in to isolation 1 and given a clinical assessment. The pup weighed 15.5 kilos and was around 10-12 weeks old with puncture wounds to its rear flippers. The pup has been put on a course of antibiotics and pain relief. The pup is a little boy and has been called Davy.
