Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Kenny

This is Kenny, he came to us this evening as he was walking around outside a fish & chip shop, and actually walked up to somebody who was at a cash machine!

He is very dehydrated, has lots of broken spines and is covered in ticks, most of which are so small I can’t get them yet. He has big clusters all over like bunches of grapes.

I gave him 80ml of subcutaneous fluids right away, and will most likely need to give him some more in an hour or so.

He is currently on a heated mat, and has started eating already. Hopefully once he is re-hydrated properly and has a few meals inside him he will be fine, just those nasty ticks to sort out.
