Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Bit stuck with my foster hog… Reply To: Bit stuck with my foster hog…


I’d keep weighing him every day at the same time – and I know the rescue centre’s can give the sc fluids (I think it’s like IV),

If that’s what needs to happen, perhaps he’d have to go back to the rescue centre.

Unfortunately I have no bright ideas to get him to eat. I wonder if it’s because he’s moved to your’s and will start eating soon after he realises he’s safe. But if he continues to drop weight, he might end up on Sc fluids.

How did the rescue centre get him to eat?
