A hedgehog who is out during the day is most likely to be unwell and may need medical attention.
With as little contact as possible the hedgehog should be placed into a box. This will avoid the hedgehog from becoming shocked. If possible the hedgehog should be covered with a towel or blanket which can help make it feel safer.
Please bring the hedgehog into the surgery, our vets will then treat and admit the hedgehog. If you have come across a nest, or accidently disturbed a nest, please do not move the Hogletts.
Hedgehog mothers are devoted to their young and will move them to a new nest. We would advise you to monitor the nest from a distance, ensuring you keep pets away and if you have any concerns then please do contact the surgery for more advise on: 01989 564687.
