Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Facial injury

Another entry tonight, adult male hog, 565g. Has an injury to the left side of his face and snout. Luckily no flystrike. Also very flat from dehydration.

He was given s/c fluids and had the wound cleaned, followed by a topical application of an antibacterial barrier cream. He is now in a cage with a heat pad, food and water.

Hopefully being so dehydrated doesn’t cause any organ damage/failure, and he’ll make a full recovery.
