    We’re currently fostering and caring for a local rescue. One particular hedgehog has a rather puzzled and was wondering if anyone had any ideas what’s going on.
    Hedgie was initially very poorly when she was found, requiring treatment for fluke, lungworm and capillaria. She also required s/c fluids for a short period. That was back in December. We over-wintered her and on getting ready to release her a few weeks back (she took a while to wake up post-hibernation and gain weight) she was sneezing and her infected coloured snot. Treated her with marbocyl followed by synulox. Although improved, she is still sneezing (but quieter) and noticed today her nose was very wet- almost streaming, but clear. Any ideas where to go next?


    I suggest she sees a vet.
    However also note that stressed hogs often have runny/dripping noses
