Your wildlife centre sounds very good. Do they treat the animals there or have a vet on site?
When I took Cyclopsina to the local vet who deals with wildlife- I thought she might have lungworm- they didn’t do any tests . Just said they would give her anti biotics. The nurse also said if it was lungworm she would have green poo which I don’t think is right.
I might have to drive further next time so that the hoggies get the best care.
Our local wildlife place just asks if we can take them to the vet!
