Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Three more hoglets

Three more hoglets have joined us this lunch time, brought in from Sturminster Marshall. They were in a stable, wandering around in the daytime, and there has been no sign of mum for a while, so the safest thing for them was to bring them in for us to care for them.

They were on the cold side, and slightly dehydrated, but otherwise seem fine. Two females weighing 98g & 110g and the third was too shy to let me check to see what sex it is, this one weighs 108g.

As you can see in the photos, one is already trying the buffet in the incubator, the other two will hopefully join it when they have warmed up a bit.

Due to their weight being ~100g, I am trying them on liquidised solids with a bit of milk replacement formula to see how they go.

Button was brought to us after being found collapsed on a driveway. She was taken to the Vets as we are very concerned for her. She has swelling all down her right side, from her eye to her tail, including her legs, and has severe bruising. She was x-rayed but no breaks were found thankfully. It is possible that she has some brain trauma, and we will have to wait and see how that develops.
