Pedrek - Rescued on 15th January 2008

We received a call on the 15th of January 2008 about a pup in St Ives. We called BDMLR who went out to locate the pup. The pup had a few injuries to its nail beds and the volunteers called us to say they thought it would need treating at the Sanctuary. Back at the Sanctuary the pup was put into an isolation pen and weighed. The pup was 20.5 kilos and we cleaned and treated his grazes. This pup is a little boy and has been named Pedrek. Pedrek
Update: 20th January 2008 - Pedrek is now in the main hospital and is learning to feed for himself; it should not be too long before we can put water in his pool.
Update: 8th February 2008 - Pedrek has been moved to the outside pools for his final stage of rehabilitation.
His flipper tag number is 023 (yellow).
