Very sick hog

Post  ron on Thu Nov 20, 2008 2:05 pm

I was called out tonight to get a young hog after someone phoned the vet to say they got one that needs help. why do people leave it till its to late before phoning someone. Got him home and weighed him and put him on heat pad but he was to week and passed away,something I will have to get used to now I am a carer.

It's so sad when they don't make it, breaks my heart every time - yet I do it again. These little animals get to us don't they. aaaw

You never really get used to them dying, just know that this little one died warm, safe and cared for. Hug

I'm so sorry to hear that Ron. It is something which happens time and time again. I hope that more people will be able to call at an earlier stage when ever they see an ill Hedgehog.

Bethany.
