Another hog

Post  ron on Mon Nov 24, 2008 3:50 am

Just had phone call to say another hog is coming to me tonight, she says he/she is quite small but eating. I will go and pick the hog up after the lady finishes work. She wanted to keep the hog herself and try to rear it, but then I told her what was needed to rear a young hog at this time of year, she decided to let me have it. Grin

Have been to pick him/her up, at least this one is nice and round, having a rest at the moment will have a closer look later. Did manage to weigh, and weighed in at 299g. As got a few all white spines on her/him, hope its female.

White spines indicate that the Hedgehog is young. That would explain the weight.
Good job with s/he.

Well this one is causing a little concern, as lost 20g since last night, wont eat anything, I have just managed to get a few syringes of cat food/weetabix soup down her neck, as soon as you put it in her mouth gulps it down as fast as she can. Only problem is the white nasty smelly gunge coming out the other end. I have just given her some baytril, this could be a long night.

Might be an idea too, it won't hurt as a precautionary measure, will do good if worms are present.

It is an idea to worm all new Hedgehogs you get first thing. And also any other treatments, because, as you all know, things spread. The last thing you want is other Hedgehogs catching it that you have already treated. I section mine off from any other Hedgehogs when I first get one, and then let them in together when they have been treated.
You are doing a very good job Ron, Hedgehogs do lose a bit of weight here and there. And if she likes being hand fed then at least she is eating.
Good luck.

Bethany.

She had a few syringes of water/sugar mix last at 12.30 before bed, got up at 6 and she was still with us, gave another 4 syringes of mixture as soon as you touch her gums and teeth she knows what to do. At 9 I gave her 4 syringes of chicken flavoured baby food mixed with water and she gulped that down with another drop of baytril. Will try and find bigger syringe so I can feed more of a paste rather then a soup mixture. Luckly I am at home fot the next few days so will be feeding every couple of hours.

Been to vets today to get a few things to make life easier, got a rew more syringes, some Hills a/d to make into soup for her feed, some pro biotic powder because of her upset tummy and some Effydral which they say is the same as lectade - Rehydration fluid and I did'nt have to get my wallet out, I did'nt have the cheek to say double the order.

Tonight weighed the little hog before she was fed she weighed in at 261g, was about to syringe her water and food and the misses wanted to do it, she took 5ml of re-hydration fluid and then she had 5ml of liguid food, she took the lot down, then the best bit, she craped over her Laughing bet she wont butt in and ask to feed her again. After the feed she weighed in at 272g
