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 have had a really busy weekend and Bank holiday, with several hogs with fly strike on their wounds that needed cleaning.
Amongst several hogs that came on was this female, who came in to us this evening after having been found out in daylight when the homeowner went out to see what his dog was barking at, and found her not moving.
