We had a call about a hedgehog in trouble on Sundayday, so it was off to Bearwood to collect an adult female hedgehog with a very bad cough.
This is almost certainly a secondary respiratory infection due to a heavy lung worm burden.
She will have nebuliser treatment for the respiratory infection, and once confirmed from checking a poo sample, will be treated for lungworm.
Tiny Pikachu trying his first solids, a mix of Esbilac and Hills a/d. His teeth are now starting to appear.
He seemed more interested in the lid (off a small jar) at first, then seemed to realise the meat was there and was tasty 😀 He polished off the whole lot in the end.
This should mean we can go longer between feeds now, which Tracy will be happy about.
It’s nice holding them to feed them, but better when they can feed themselves.
