Harry Survives His Ordeal
Occasionally at our practice we have injured wildlife bought in to us in need of our care.
This is Harry a baby hedgehog bought to us by a caring member of the public. He had a badly broken back leg and was weak and shocked. After receiving treatment for his infections and food and nursing for a few days he was healthy enough to have surgery. Unfortunately it was not possible to fix his fractures so we were forced to amputate his leg. Luckily he recovered extremely well after his operation and we were able to rehome him to a charity for injured hedgehogs only a few days later. He now lives in an enclosed garden where he is safe and happy!
Hedgehogs are becoming endangered and we are all very pleased to report a happy ending to Harry's story.
