Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Portable ICU unit

Our new portable ICU unit arrived from Brinsea today, this will enable us to provide the warmth and isolation essential for critical care needs for  young, sick, injured or weak hedgehogs at the point of collection, and in transit, instead of waiting until we get them home. We can also use it at home as an extra ICU / Recovery unit if needed.

The purchase of this unit was made possible by a kind donation from a friend whom I served with in the Royal Marines, back in the day – Thank you Pete!
