Hi Nic,

The hedgehog appeared again today around 1.30pm. Still an offensive smell. I took it to my vet. Poor little thing was riddled with maggots, so sadly he was put down. I do wonder if anything else could have been done, but having been a nurse, the smell was putrid and I think he was too sick to save. Thanks for the number which I have kept for any future requirements.
