Winter hog care

The time of year has arrived to put a little extra food and water out for hogs who are trying to increase body fats to enable them to hybernate successfully and smaller hogs born late in the year need a little extra help they need to be 650g by the end of October for successful hibernation,any smaller than that at end of october need to come in to care.Also if ill injured or out during the day these hogs will need help usually due to worm infestation so will need worming and antibiotics also dehydration is a problem, this is done via injection of fluid as hogs cannot drink enough to rehydrate themselves,if in doubt ring for advice thank you x
