Charlestown was rescued on 20th November 2017
Charlestown, 5 weeks old male seal pup, was rescued on 20th November 2017 from Towan beach in Newquay.

Although this pup has an upper respiratory infection and malnourish, the next day he had started to show an interest in fish and to feed for himself! (you may see the chewed fish in front of pup in this photo!) He is very snotty and will need some antibiotics to help clear the infection.

Update - 28th November 2017 : Charlestown is now feeling better and off medication but still in isolation waiting for space in the main hospital.

Update - 7th December 2017 : Charlestown is in the hospital and has developed an ulcer in his eye which the Animal Care team are closely monitoring with the vet. He is receiving eye drops 5-6 times a day and also on antibiotics.
