Yes it is handy i’ve learnt all sorts over the years and work with a large team of veterinary pathologists so i pick their brains all the time.
i don’t have any concerns about the hedgies health here but i may check a sample for eggs in the future just for interest sake. if there was a high count i could feed a little pumpkin seed but then there is no guarantee the correct hedgehog would eat it. I suppose the whole thought behind it was to feed a little now and again to help prevent any hogs becoming overwhelmed and thus the need for care and meds. in reality i think its wishful thinking there’s not enough information available about it being a viable option or a waste of time.
Lung worm sounds horrible i’ve seen it in dogs hopefully i don’t come across it
