The wound above Lizzie’s eye has almost healed now, but the eye is still very cloudy. We are still not sure if she will regain the sight in this eye or not.
She has to regrow her hair and spikes above and around the eye, which may take some time, so she will be staying with us for a while yet.
Hedgehogs with sight in only one eye do surprisingly well in the wild, this is due to the fact that they actually have fairly poor eyesight, and find most of their food by smell.
We took in a baby female hedgehog (now called Sweetpea) from Upton Vets this afternoon, that had been handed in after being found out in daytime.
She was dehydrated, so we have given her subcut fluids, and luckily she had done a poo in her box on the way home, so I checked it under the microscope.
