After an early morning handover in a car park an Autumn Juvenile weighing 360g was quickly settled into her home for the Winter, initially indoors but later in the heated Hoggery.
Runny grey poo was not a good sign, as these little hogs often have a considerable worm burden which can quickly be life threatening. Having been wormed, and given antibiotics prescribed by our helpful vet, she is rapidly putting on weight and especially loving her tinned cat food but also sampling the cat biscuits, hedgehog nuggets and Ark Wildlife muesli (no mealworms!).
Hedgehogs cannot safely hibernate under 600g and should be a lot heavier than that so now weighing in at 415g she has bed, breakfast and evening meal, free heating and cleaning services probably until the end of April.
