Pup Update
As there is no change with the residents, all are feeding well, but with the pups there have been a few moves.

In the hospital, isolation is now free and Lavender (photo below left) has been moved through into hospital pen number 1, she is eating fish for herself, is still a little bit snuffly and very wriggly when we are trying to treat her.

Tonks (photo below middle) has also been moved through to the main hospital, but is still receiving eye drops and antibiotics for her breathing and snotty nose, but overall she is looking a lot brighter then when we first brought her in.

Hermione (photo below right) , after last weeks piece of good news that Hermione was eating fish, this week she has changed her mind and has started to rip them up again, and not really eating them. The Animal Care Team have now had to go back to assist feeding her again, but only during the mornings, hopefully she will change her mind again and will soon be back to eating for herself.
Pup Pool: All pups are doing well and coming through the pox slowly.
