Busy Week

We’ve had quite a busy week so far, 19 hedgehogs came in and 24 went out for release, 3 new entries sadly died.

There are still approximately 80 hogs out to foster that all need to come back, be checked over, microchipped and their release arranged.

We can only call hogs that are out to foster back when there are empty cages here to put them in – we need hogs releasing to make room for them, so please, if you get a call or a message from us about collecting ‘your’ hedgehog for release, get back to us ASAP. That way, we know who wants hogs back, and which ones we have to make other arrangements for.

Thank you.

Bilbo Baggins

Bilbo Baggins had to pay a visit to the Vets today. She had one of her rear legs amputated by the emergency vets recently, due to having had it trapped somehow and in getting herself free had ripped part of the leg off.

The resulting wound was infected, despite a course of antibiotics, which has caused problems with the healing of the amputation wound.

Upton vets took her in today to clean up the wound and re-stitch it for us. The wound was flushed, debrided and lasered, then stitched up. Hopefully it will heal properly now, and Bilbo can get on with rehabilitation.

Thank you to Upton & Wareham Vets for taking care of Bilbo for us
