Hot hedgehogs!

Donview Automated

During this lovely weather please have a think of the wildlife that may appear in your garden. A shallow bowl of water can save a wee hedgehog from becoming dehydrated. 🦔☀️

This hedgehog is not dancing! He’s suffering from dehydration, causing an unsteady, weak walk. Please put a shallow dish of water out for animals to enjoy, it is so important in such hot dry weather! Note that dehydrated hogs can be found at any time of the year and in any weather, as illness or injury can also result in dehydration. Always pick up and find help as soon as possible for a hedgehog like this, or any out in the daytime that are small, and or sleepy/slow moving, they will need specialist treatment.
