Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Underweight Hedgehog in November Reply To: Underweight Hedgehog in November


We managed to rescue a total of four hoglets from the same brood this last few weeks. They weighed 150-220g. We took them all to Tiggywinkles who remarked they had been inundated in the last few weeks and that many hogs seemed to have had a late brood and because of the lateness most are underweight.

If you do rescue hogs and take them to a rescue centre please try and leave a donation to cover the cost of “board and lodging” for the winter. Many smaller centre survive on a shoestring budget and wouldn’t exist without donations.
