    Hi This is the first time i have posted on the site but I would like some advice I have had a hedgehog visit the feeding station every night for the last week its very thin looking and has ticks all over its face neck and you can see them between the spines on its side I can only see one side due to the camera angle but I’m sure the other side is just the same Is there anything I should do or should I just keep feeding it and hope its strong enough to survive this infestation?


    It sounds like it’s probably in need of help.
    It’s normal for hogs to carry some ticks, but when they are unwell they can get out of hand
    I would strongly recommend catching it and taking it to your nearest carer asap
