Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Covered in tar

This little hog came to us covered in tar yesterday. He was cleaned up with Fairy Liquid and a tooth brush. We managed to get most of the tar off, but he will need a few repeat treatments to remove it entirely.

He showed his appreciation by constantly huffing and puffing at me whilst I cleaned him off.

  1. Found a baby female weight of 221g. Gave her dry cat food, wet cat food and water last night she seemed fine. Today, very lethargic, drinking but not eating much. Took her to a local vet (AlphaVet Newport Gwent) who kept her for an hour and a half, did nothing. We’ve brought her home and still lethargic.
    Anything we can do to help her?
