Hi Terri002

If you think it looks small, the best thing to do is to weigh it. 450g is the recommended weight needed to survive hibernation. I would contact your local carer (you can find the nearest from the BHPS 01584 890801) before weighing to get their advice and see whether they can take the little one in, if necessary.

If you do decide to weigh the little hog there are some tips under this topic:

Good luck.
