Before contacting us, please make sure the animal is safe and not going to go missing while you are talking to us. Gently put it in a high sided box, with something for it to snuggle under (such as an old towel, or fleece), and then put in a quiet, safe place indoors. If you do not get hold of us immediately, please give the animal a bowl of water and some cat or dog food if you have any. If cold, a tepid hot water bottle, wrapped in a cloth and placed close to the animal will be beneficial.
As we are currently full and unable to take any more hedgehogs please contact Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital - 07951 285366 or your local vetinary practice.
