At the end of last week, we said goodbye to Eden, Red and Frome as they were released back to the wild.
The convalescent pool pups are all feeding well and putting on weight.
Dee is now back down at the nursery pools but has been put on a diet in the hope he will be a little less of a handful on his next trip to the vets!
Lune, Brant, Don and Tees are now sharing a nursery pool and are all feeding well. Brant’s eye is on the mend thanks to his medication. Wiske has had to be moved into her own nursery pool as she has been a little off her food. The Animal Care Team have taken a blood sample, a faecal sample and a nasal swab to try and find out what is going on.
Breezie, Dagger, Smokey, Ermine, Bubbles, Dinky, Hoompah and Winter are all feeding well but seal pox is still present on some of the seals. After a change of antibiotics, Bubbles jaw is starting to heal. The Animal Care Team are watching him closely and making sure he gets his treatment twice a day.
Taw remains in the hospital for now but he is doing well. The Animal Care Team are awaiting the results of a further test, and if this comes back clear, he can be moved down to the nursery pools with the other seals.
