Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Euthanise hog without cheek and eye? Reply To: Euthanise hog without cheek and eye?


Fingers crossed this little chap makes it or at least isn’t suffering too much any more as a result of his misfortune. I did secondary rehab care for a female hog last year who lost half her face in a trimmer accident. She was incredibly brave and fiesty – with only one eye, one ear and half a nose, she was rereleased after surgery and 6 months of rehab. I think if your chap was still trying to eat with only half a face, he deserves a chance too, they are incredibly tolerant creatures but just need help from us sometimes.
