I certainly would advise for someone to check the hog out. They very often have lungworm and need to be treated for it. Ringworm is also rife. Pretty much every hedgehog we have had brought in for the past few monhs has had lungworm. We had a young one of 284gms yesterday and the poo sample showed 22 lungworms without moving the slide. Needless to say he is now receiving treatment.
