Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Help! Small hog found lying under the bird feeders this morning Reply To: Help! Small hog found lying under the bird feeders this morning


Update on the little hog – he was starving and hypothermic. The vet gave him fluids and a number for a local (ish) hedgehog rescue. I rang them and they came over to take him, as they can give him antibiotics/worming/flea and tick treatments as well.

He’s only 370g and may not make it through the night, so I thought it best to let the carer take him – I have to work so wouldn’t be able to give him as much care.

I’m so sorry to find out that hogs are starving in my area. I guess the kitten biscuits are getting gobbled up by the cats. I am going to find a way to provide a cat proof feeding station!
