Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

We’ve had another two new entries this afternoon. This is the first – an elderly male we have named Brandon.

He was found trapped in a locked garage, nesting in some plastic wrapping from a sofa. His finders have no idea how long he may have been in there, but they estimate it was for at least two weeks and could be as long as two months.

Due to his size and the lack of food, it is likely he has hibernated for some of that time. He is dehydrated and a little weak, but he should make a full recovery. He has had sub-cut fluid and is now in a crate with plenty of food and water.

The wound above Lizzie’s eye has almost healed now, but the eye is still very cloudy. We are still not sure if she will regain the sight in this eye or not.

She has to regrow her hair and spikes above and around the eye, which may take some time, so she will be staying with us for a while yet.

Hedgehogs with sight in only one eye do surprisingly well in the wild, this is due to the fact that they actually have fairly poor eyesight, and find most of their food by smell.
