Trapped in a net

This hog came to us after being trapped in pond netting and was partially submerged in the pond.

It was cut out of the netting and brought home to cut away the rest of the netting. The hog was very cold, so was placed on a heat pad while I cut it free.

It was given subcutaneous fluids for shock and dehydration, and it was placed in one of the ICU’s to warm up.

There were no obvious signs of injury, so it will be released once it’s had time to recover from the shock of it’s ordeal.

The wound above Lizzie’s eye has almost healed now, but the eye is still very cloudy. We are still not sure if she will regain the sight in this eye or not.

She has to regrow her hair and spikes above and around the eye, which may take some time, so she will be staying with us for a while yet.

Hedgehogs with sight in only one eye do surprisingly well in the wild, this is due to the fact that they actually have fairly poor eyesight, and find most of their food by smell.
