On the morning of the 6th January 2017, HESC received an orphaned warthog from Phalaborwa. We donโ€™t have any information on how the piglet was left orphaned. He was named Winston.

When this baby first arrived, he drank 20ml of milk 6 times a day (that is, every 3 hours). Unfortunately, two days after his arrival he developed a slight diarrhea so his milk was reduced by 50%. He was treated with antibiotics and Diomec for his diarrhea.

For the first three weeks, we were kept extremely busy monitoring this little oneโ€™s health and milk intake. Thankfully our baby warthog is growing well and is back to his initial feeding – drinking 20ml of milk 6 times a day.

We look forward to watching Winston continue to grow and thrive.
