Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

This is Willow, an adult female, not pregnant, not lactating, collected from Bovington this morning after being found out in daylight, very cold and lethargic.

She has a skin condition and is losing her spines, but is a very good weight for post-hibernation, weighing in at 1009g (I know, you should never tell anyone a ladies weight ).

We will treat her for the skin condition, and check for lungworm etc as soon as she produces a poo for me to check under the microscope.

She is in one of the ICU/Recovery units being warmed up at the moment.
