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.

Bank Holiday

We hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend!

Ours has been spent mostly picking off flystrike from the many hogs who have come in over the weekend, hence not so many updates recently.

Please remember if you are doing any gardening or DIY in your gardens, look out for hedgehogs and in particular nests of babies. They may be under a shrub, a shed, decking, behind plant pots and even under the tarpaulin covers of garden furniture or bar-b-ques.

If you happen to disturb a nest, please cover it over again and give us a call for advice. We are here 24/7 on 07587 925476
