Old hedgehog

This old chap came in to us this morning after being found laying out in the open. He is very thin despite weighing 679g, quite dehydrated and weak. He is very cold, wobbly and unable to stand.

He has been given warm subcutaneous fluids and placed into an ICU to warm up. He has food and water available.

It is possible he has just woken up from hibernation and is in need of a good feed and some fluids. Hopefully he will recover his strength once he has warmed up and been able to eat.
