Humphrey

Humphrey, the hedgehog that came in with balloon syndrome, has been back from the vets for a couple of days, and is looking fine with no sign of him ‘ballooning’ again.

He looks like a normal hog now, instead of a blimp and is eating well. He still has a bit of diarrhoea, which we think is due to the antibiotics, but is otherwise healthy.

He will be ready for release back to the wild in a week or so, when we are sure he is fit and healthy.

We need to monitor her food intake for a few days, and take her back to the vet if she is not eating properly in the next couple of days.

She has lost a lot of weight because her mouth has been too sore for her to eat, and needs some feeding up.
