We’ve had a tough time at Wolf Watch over the past few weeks. Pepe gave us a bit of a scare, he developed a large swelling on his throat and stopped eating. The initial prognosis from the vet was not good and we feared the worse. He has suffered a lot of muscle wastage and became unsteady on his feet. Tony spent lots of time with Pepe encouraging him to eat, by hand feeding him his favourite sardines. The signs became a little more encouraging and we called the vet out again and further investigations determined that the swelling was an abscess and nothing more sinister. A course of strong antibiotics was proscribed and we are pleased to report that there has been significant improvement in his appetite and we are hopeful that this is the start of him retuning to the Pepe that we all know and love.
