Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Hedgehog Coughing Reply To: Hedgehog Coughing


I had a hedgehog last year who seemed to be sneezing. I did take it to the local vet who kept her in for 3 days and gave her antibiotics. They never confirmed she had lung worm.
This was last winter before she finally hibernated so no hoglets around.
I don’t know how to advise on this. Is it definitely a girl?
Hopefully someone with more knowledge will answer you.
I would still ring BHPS ASAP and see what they say.
Good luck and keep us posted
