Have you found a Hedgehog?

If you have found a hedgehog out in the day it will almost certainly have a problem.

We have unfortunately closed our hedgehog unit due to funding, but please follow the steps in this green box as it helps increase the odds of the Hedgehogs survival.

We are available to call for advice but unfortunately will not be able to take the hog from you. You can reach us on 01704 823 293.
  • Pick up the Hedgehog
    Pick up the Hedgehog by slipping your fingers under its tummy. Alternatively use gloves or place a towel over its spines.
  • Secure the Hedgehog
    Place it in a deep sided cardboard or plastic box.
  • Get the hedgehog warm
    Fill a bottle (old drinks bottle or water bottle) with warm-to-hot water and place it under a towel in the box to ensure the hedgehog doesn't get burnt.

Once you have completed the steps above, please take the hog to your nearest vet practice to be checked over.

If you wish to contact us for any other matter, please see below.
