    I have tried to attach a video of my visiting hedgehogs having trouble walking . Our local rescue centre said that there is a virus going around causing similar symptoms and to clean dishes every night or even stop feeding for a while to stop it spreading.

    I now have had only 1 visiting hog in the last week (2 or three have gone).

    I fear that they may have died or be unable to walk any more.

    I can see that another lady has posted something similar.Has anybody else seen this in their area and had a positive outcome?



    Hi sarah75.
    I tried to access your link but couldn’t.. That is so worrying about a virus going around, I daily clean dishes but will be extra careful and move them to different areas too.
    It’s quite impossible to get hogs to practice social isolation thou isn’t it ! Thank you for posting this information.
