you probably do this anyway, but make sure you where surgical gloves when cleaning out your feeding station, and wash hands throughly – because if it’s internal parasites, and/or lungworm, you don’t want to get infected either – be like a doctor operating on a patient.

The hedgehog I’m looking after, who is going to be in hospital on Sunday until late spring (phew), had her poo sampled today and she’s got lungworm – it’s mushy poo but not green.

But I’m thinking, poo that doesn’t look right could very well be an internal parasite – so be extra careful, keep your stuff in the kitchen well away from the hedgehog’s stuff – even after you’ve cleaned the dishes, just to be on the safe side.
