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.
We took in a baby female hedgehog (now called Sweetpea) from Upton Vets this afternoon, that had been handed in after being found out in daytime.
She was dehydrated, so we have given her subcut fluids, and luckily she had done a poo in her box on the way home, so I checked it under the microscope.
