Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Up a flight of stairs

Another new entry this morning, a young adult male hog, 412g, found up a flight of stairs in a block of flats this morning. Quite wobbly and disorientated.

This little hog was quite dehydrated, flat and his eyes were sunken. He was also fairly cold. This chap has probably just come out of hibernation and was desperate for food and water.

We gave him warm subcutaneous fluids and have put him into an ICU to warm up, with food and water available.

Many thanks to Katie Crawford for collecting this little fella and dropping him off to us.
