Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Mae

This is little Mae, a 240g female hoglet that was found by the children of Upton Infants School 5 days ago.

She was dehydrated, cold and very hungry. After a day and a half in one of our incubators, she picked up really well, and is now quite active. She has a healthy appetite and we can see no reason why she would not be ready for release when she gets up to weight.

We have paired her up with another orphan hoglet, Zippy, as our experience is that orphan hoglets do better with other hoglets of the same size/age.

Thank you to the children for finding her, and to the School for contacting us to get the care she needed.

Dental work

This venerable old lady is back from the vets now, she has had a full dental job including scale and polish.

Her lips are still swollen, as you can see in the photos, and her mouth and gums will be sore for a day or two. She had very bad Gingivitis and plaque, which the vet has sorted for her now.

We need to monitor her food intake for a few days, and take her back to the vet if she is not eating properly in the next couple of days.

She has lost a lot of weight because her mouth has been too sore for her to eat, and needs some feeding up.
