Found a Sick or Injured Hedgehog?
If you see a hedgehog with obvious injuries, get help as quickly as possible. Call us at 01344 623106 or contact your local wildlife rescue. For hedgehogs that seem sick, i.e. they are staggering, sluggish etc, call for help and bring them inside in a large box and keep them warm (e.g. with a hot water bottle). Line the box with clean hay, dry leaves or crumpled newspapers, and provide fresh, clean water and some tinned dog food. When handling hedgehogs, especially hoglets, wear gloves so as not to leave your scent on them. If you see a hedgehog that appears to be healthy, leave it alone, as any disturbance may cause it undue stress.
