Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Didn’t make it

This little hog came in at lunchtime today, having been found out during the day, just laying on the lawn. It was very poorly, with a rattly chest, difficult breathing, severely dehydrated and anaemic – its gums were as white as a sheet. I removed over 200 ticks, which was as many as the poor thing could stand us removing.

I gave it 60ml of subcut fluids, and put it in one of the incubators to warm up, but unfortunately it passed away within an hour of arriving.
