Sad endings

Sadly, for every success story there is an unhappy ending for some of our patients. Often the hedgehogs are rescued too late and are beyond help.

At Snuffle Lodge, we operate a policy of never extending the life of an animal beyond such a time as the quality of life suffers detrimentally or the animal is in obvious pain and cannot be treated.

Sometimes this means making heart-breaking decisions, but these are always taken in full consultation with our vets at Byron Veterinary Clinic

These are the hogs who didn’t make it – it’s worth reading their stories as it may help you identify hogs in trouble in the future.
