Third Pup of New Rescue Season
On the 25th September 2009 the Sanctuary received a call about a seal at Padstow. Due to the pup's condition, we recruited the help of the BDMLR. The pup was brought into the Sanctuary and taken straight into main hospital pen number 3.

The pup was weighed and found to be 37 kilos, 3 weeks old and the clinical assessment found that the pup had ulcers to the top of the mouth and a 2 puncture wounds to its tail, but also had wheezing breathing.

The wounds were cleaned and treated and was also given a course of antibiotics.

The pup is a little boy and been named Dudley.
Update: Dudley has nearly finished his moult and once infections have cleared we will put him in water.
