I have a hedgehog here who had a strimmer injury and a really messy wound – which I suspect a vet may have suggested euthanasia for. She was cured and healed thanks to the dedication of the local wildlife hospital and also thanks in part to manuka honey. She is now back home again being a wild hedgehog.

I completely agree with Steff, that injured animals need to be taken to an experienced carer or vet without delay.
