Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

New entries

Two new entries today, one just after midnight last night and one this morning at 8.30.

Last night’s entry is a male, found unresponsive on the pavement. 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.

This mornings entry is a young female, almost totally unresponsive and extremely dehydrated. She has had two lots of subcutaneous fluids already and is in one of the ICU/Recovery units.

She is still fairly unresponsive, but does attempt to raise her spikes when touched now. This young lass is 50/50 at the moment, but we hope she’ll pull through.
