Sweetpea

We took in a baby female hedgehog (now called Sweetpea) from Upton Vets this afternoon, that had been handed in after being found out in daytime.

She was dehydrated, so we have given her subcut fluids, and luckily she had done a poo in her box on the way home, so I checked it under the microscope.

She has lungworm and roundworms, for which she will be treated.

The photos, taken from our microscope, show Crenosoma Striatum larvae (lungworm) and Capillaria eggs (roundworm).

Passed away

We had this adult male hog dropped off to us on Tuesday morning from Blandford, it had been found laying out on the drive, not moving and did not roll up when poked.

It was dehydrated and had some bite wounds on it’s right side, just above the skirt.

We gave it subcut fluids for the dehydration and shock, cleaned and treated his wounds and placed him in one of the ICU’s , but he sadly passed away an hour later.
