Comet was rescued on 25th January 2016
Comet, grey seal pup, was rescued on 25th January 2016 from Overstrand by volunteer seal rescuer Stephanie after she found her with a very swollen mouth.

Once back at the centre the Animal Care Team found lots of minor wounds, consistent with Comet having been in a fight. After the vet had been down to see her, she was put on a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs to take the swelling down and treat the infection.
