Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

A very kind lady brought this young female hedgehog to us from Bransgore, where it was found out in a car park, walking in circles during the day.

She has a swollen right eye, and seems to have some tenderness around its head, but no sign of a wound.

She was dehydrated and is infested with fleas, only the second or third hog with fleas we’ve had in the last year.

She has had subcutaneous fluids to re-hydrate her, some analgesic and has had a bath followed by a topical treatment for the fleas.

She was very stressed, breathing fast and panting with her mouth open so she is now in an indoor box with food and water, in a cool dark room for her to settle down.

We called her Lizzie as it’s the Queens birthday today.

He was dehydrated so was given subcutaneous fluids and offered food and water. He had eaten all his food when we checked him earlier this morning and is looking fine, so will be released after a couple of days observation.
