    Hi everyone
    Sorry if this has been discussed before or is in the wrong place, first time poster!

    We have a hedgehog that visits us every night and we’ve noticed it shaking a little bit in the past two nights – it only seems to last for a minute or so – the clips before and after show no shaking. Seems to happen after it has food or drink. We’d be interested to see if it’s any cause for concern?


    Hi markp1
    Excuse me jumping in but taking a break from gardening and just logged in here.
    I have no expert advice but find your video very interesting.
    I had a similar experience a few months ago and rang a rescue place, but they just said if the hog is moving and eating don’t worry – easy to say 🙁
    I don’t have a camera, so describing what was happening was very difficult.
    My little hog is still here but my concern was a throat blockage making swallowing problems.
    Wonderfully helpful experts here who can advise you – but as it’s an understandable concern for you could I suggest try putting your post under the Rescuing a Hedgehog section as I believe that is checked more frequently.
    Be really interested to know what you find out.


    thanks daffydill, I’ve done so now. only seems to happen once a night for a minute or so!


    Sure it wasn’t just trying to shake the fleas off?
