Respiratory infection

We had a call about a hedgehog in trouble on Sunday, so it was off to Bearwood to collect an adult female hedgehog with a very bad cough.

This is almost certainly a secondary respiratory infection due to a heavy lung worm burden.

She will have nebuliser treatment for the respiratory infection, and once confirmed from checking a poo sample, will be treated for lungworm.
