Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Out during daytime

Another new entry today, an adult male hog, 827g in from Bovington. Found out during daytime.

He is dehydrated and not very responsive. No apparent injuries. We think he is still drowsy from hibernation.

We have given him subcutaneous fluids for his dehydration and he is now in a cage with food and water. He has a bit of ringworm, which we will treat him for when he perks up a bit.

This is another hog that shows signs of rats having chewed on his spines while he was hibernating.
