Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Vomiting Hedgehog? Reply To: Vomiting Hedgehog?


I have two dishes of water out, one by the feeding station outside and the other on my concrete path, often birds drink and bathe and cats drink, I change the water as often as I can but the hedgehog could’ve drank water that birds have been bathing in, could that have given the hedgehog a bad tummy?

Or maybe could it have been the tap water, I read in a previous post that the chlorine is bad in the tap water, could that be causing issues? To replace the tap water I have a water butt in my garden that collects rain water, Would it be better if I switched to using the rain water out of the water butt for the hedgehog to drink?
