Hi HedghieLover

It may be that Huffy had a slight respiratory infection and that is why he was huffing. It’s always a bit difficult to know, without knowing what the huffing sounded like! But if that was the case, he may have recovered from it and stopped huffing.

But, for instance if the huffing had become more of a wheeze or he sounded as if his breething was laboured, that would have been a time to think about getting him checked over in case he had lungworm or something like that.

I haven’t got time at the moment. But I’ll look out the link to tips for identifying hedgehogs, later. You may or may not already know, but my profile pic is a sort of template (or an idea of one) to draw the hog markings on, to make it easier to recognise them.
