Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

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).
