Well so far so good...I found some tadpoles today and made a mush and rolled a rat pup in it and he ate 2. I think he will be alright. It has been about 5 months. But his last meal before this was large..then it cooled off here and I think maybe his internal clock said don't eat now til spring. Anyhow the wait is over. Thanx
:Order some toads or go flip boards for them. Even when toads aren't out, they can normally be found under boards/logs/tires ect. Why did you let it go on so long? If they snake will not accept mice and exhausted its fat stores(according to you that is), then toads are the natural choice. In my experience, when a hog becomes too skinny, there is usually not that much of a chance of saving it. Most malnourished hogs I have found or received fair poorly and end up dying even though they ate. Too little too late I guess. But then again, hogs can go for a while without eating so he may just be a bit skinny instead of in danger of more immediate problems. Good luck to you. Andy
