Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Advice please – mange or just muck Reply To: Advice please – mange or just muck


saw yet another one last night with a white streak on it – I didn’t have this problem last year (just Huffy with a white spiral on his rump) but a lot of seen this summer, just lately has got white patches on them.

I feel really angry and upset that someone might be picking these hogs up, who appear to me, at the mo, healthy, therefore picking them up for no reason.

And plus, in addition to that, it makes me panic a bit cause we have to go through asking ourselves ‘is it fly stike, mange.’ or whatever. Which causes me to be concerned about them, wonder if I should pick them up myself and check if they are ok and then cause them additional trauma.
