Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Bilbo update

Little Bilbo is doing well after his amputation, he is eating well, and has done the all important post op poo and wee.

We are keeping him in the incubator for another night, just to be safe, and then he will be moved into one of our hospital cages.

He has a crackly chest, which we will monitor in case he develops pneumonia, and we will give him a course of treatment in the nebuliser to help with that.

Once recovered, he will go to a fully enclosed garden, where he can live as natural a life as possible, while still being supplement fed.

Garden Feeding Stations

We maintain several feeding stations for hedgehogs in our garden as we get so many of them visiting, probably because at the bottom of our garden is Lytchett Bay nature reserve, a SSSI. We found several autumn juveniles in the garden, or out on the nature reserve, that were too small for hibernation, so have had them over wintering. These all get released out the back, so it’s nice to be able to see them still around.
