Upon arrival at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, the pup was found to weigh 13kgs; he was put into isolation pen of the hospital and the local vets were called. Hawk Eye was examined by the Sanctuary´s local vet and it seems that the pup is in good health. Occasionally his breathing becomes rapid indicating a possible respiratory infection for which he is on precautionary antibiotics.

Update - 12th October 2014 : Hawk Eye is being fed every four hours with a warm lactose-free milk substitute enriched with salmon oil to help him put on weight. Once Hawk Eye is two weeks old he can begin to be weaned onto fish.
