Today's new arrivals;

066 - adult male dragging both hind legs. Nothing obvious on the Xrays so I'll continue with anti-inflammatory pain killers, and hope for improvement over the next week. Otherwise it might be a PTS case.

067 - adult female out in daylight. Vets couldnt find anything wrong with it - I'm trying to make contact with the finder to get the full story and ask them to look out for babies. In the meantime I shall keep a close eye on it and check poo samples for parasites.

Rowan has left the rescue, back to fantastic home with his finders. He knew he was ready to go as he was digging holes in my lawn every night this week trying to escape his run, much livelier than when he arrived!

Its turning into one of those days...just eating breakfast/lunch now. A strimmed hog arrived today (#068), and taken straight to the vets. I'm waiting to see the outcome of the inspection under general anaesthetic as there is a possibility the injury goes into the abdominal cavity.

An update on last weekend's arrivals;

#66 (dandelion) is still dragging both hind legs, but he is trying to use them more, and is putting more weight on the right leg, so I'm giving him another week for the time being. In the meantime I've been treating his ringworm.

# 67 (Primrose) just appears to have internal parasites. She can be released next Sunday providing she doesnt do anything silly like give birth.

I also managed to release 061 (Krusty) who as his names suggests, had ringworm and internal parasites.

Tonight's arrival is #69. Its more a question of what he doesnt have Sad So far the tally is fluke worm, round worm & ringworm (which is actually a fungus). On top of this all 4 paws have lacerations which are weepy, infected & crusty. So I've got him on antibiotics, painkillers & rehydration fluids and he's booked into the vets tomorrow. The good news is he is trying to stand, albeit very wobbly, and is eating well.

070 arrived today - apparently I cant visit the vets without gaining more hedgehogs at the mo. No background to this one, a large adult male, all 4 legs are operational, but some crusted blood around his nose, so its a waiting game now he's been settled in.

This is no 69 being given some food before he made it to me - you can see his damaged feet in this photo.

All the hedgehogs here are doing well. I was really pleased with Dandelion (#66) who arrived a week & half ago from the vets dragging both hind legs is now putting a bit of weight on both of them tonight. He's currently having hydrotherapy sessions to help him maintain his leg muscles.

I've released Primrose (#067) today back to her finders after a short course of de-worming. Hopefully she wont go wandering around in daylight again now.

Tulip & baby, she's being an excellent Mum despite being totally blind. This also means the flash photography through the cage doesnt bother her at all.

Hedgehog Rescue Bradley Stoke
Bert Ainslie was finally released this evening, after overwintering inside due to his very wheezy breathing, almost certainly as a result of permanent scarring from lungworm. I may see him back in the Autumn!
Tulip & babies are doing well, I caught sight of a very fat baby trying to feed from Mum tonight, wriggling around on its back to get underneath her.

Tulip's babies are now 14 days old, ranging from 98-107g, and their eyes should open in the next day or two. Tulip's lesions have healed really well so once the babies are onto solids I'll probably move them all into a larger hutch outside.

I also evicted Aspen (#70) tonight, who came to me via the vets with internal parasites. He's gone off to a new home with luxury Ikea accommodation!

Tulip's babies are getting pretty big now, this photo was taken during a nest clean out. Unfortunately I appear to have broken my phone camera lens, so apologies for the quality.

Tulip is completely un-phased by the disturbance and continues to feed them, but I suspect she'll be getting fed up with the babies pretty soon! She's already spending more time outside the nest to get some peace.

Tulip's babies are now 160g and their eyes have opened. poor Tulip isn't getting any rest now as the babies will follow her out the nest. I've started offering slop to wean them off her milk but they haven't shown much interest yet.

Mum Tulip having a sniff around her new home, and displaying her gorgeous fur. She still has a little bit of ringworm on her nose that I haven't been able to deal with yet.

071 with the broken front leg, now 111g. She's been to the vets today and is back again tomorrow for an Xray and hopefully a splint if they think its fixable. However its still a "guarded prognosis"
