Hi hedgehog lovers

Post  Wildliferescuer on Thu Dec 11, 2008 3:07 pm

Hi everyone.
I run a wildlife hospital & rehabilitation centre in Worcs which I set up in 1984.
We take in & treat all British wildlife, over 4,500 casualties every year.
At the moment we have about 140 hedgehogs in our care, mostly underweight juveniles.
If I can help with any advice on wildlife first aid or rehab, please ask & I will try to help.

Hi Ron
Thanks for the question.
Can you give me a bit more detail about your hog. Where are you keeping him, at what temperature, what are its faeces like (colour, consistency etc)?
