Nemo arrived on 19th October 2010
We received a call about a pup on the beach on 19th October 2010, Clare and Rachael, from the sanctuary, grabbed the cage & kit and set out for Godrevy.

Clare and Rachael arrived on the beach and spotted the pup in the middle of the beach being looked after by Bob from the National Trust, and keeping members of the public back.

The pup who was very sleepy, malnourished and had blood on it front right flipper, and only a week old would need to come back to the Sanctuary.
Nemo
Nemo The pup named Nemo, because of the injury to its flipper (now also know as his lucky flipper) was placed in the cage for the journey back.

At the Sanctuary Nemo was put into the temporary pen. He was treated for the wound on his flipper, started on a course of antibiotics to fight infection.

The next day, Nemo was moved out of the temporary pen and into the isolation pen 1.
Update: 4th November 2010 - Nemo has now moulted and still looks as cute as ever, very bright and being fed on whole fish.

Update: 13th November 2010 - As you can see from the photo right, Nemo has now fully moulted and learning to eat fish in water. This is done by putting his fish in a bowl of water.

Update: 28th November 2010 - Nemo is in hospital pen No. 1, he has had his flipper tag removed as it was causing an irritation, but has now been re-tagged No. 005.
