thanks guys for the replies.

eileen, im not sure what they are, my best guess was fly eggs cos the flies wont leave him alone. Shouldnt have brought him inside really but i wanted the flies to leave him alone

enola, thanks, no carers near me unfortunately. Ive rung hedgehog hospital, number given by shell, theyre not answering so ive left a message and hopefully they will get back to me tonight


and just for the record, ive missed you guys x

Having read Rach's reply it will be maggots - it's hard to be sure working from descriptions where you can't actually see, but it does make sense if there are so many.

Glad to hear you've sorted it all out though!

howve you been eileen?

after gettin advice off sue, ive removed all eggs and the little one has both eyes in tact!! flushed his mouth out incase they were in there and hes taken some sugar water from a straw with me gently blowing it into his mouth. im kinda taken by the little guy, may ask sue if i can either keep him with her guidance or have him back if he recovers. im just glad hes egg free. will be gettin a hot water bottle as soon as i get home

I've been better Cat - a helluva lot better, but I'm not too bad now.

how is he this morning - poor little fella? Have you weighed him - that could give an idea of how young he is?

well, what a turn around - i cleaned his eyes of all the horrible eggs, cleaned a wound that they seemed to be congragating round and gave him some sugar water through a straw after id flushed his mouth out. on my way home from work in the car he stood up, opened his eyes and went to the water and drank!! hes been in a box in my wardrobe to keep him away from the cats and he was scrabbling about all night! looked in on him and he looked up at me!!

im amazed!! not sure if hes eaten any food.

eileen, not weighed him, havent got scales anymore, but from the size of him sue said hes about 5 weeks old

the eggs were maggots cos when i got to his actual eye they had just started to hatch.

just spoken to sue, she is going to take him sometime in the week to worm him and make sure he has no other problems, then shes happy for me to be his carer over the winter with the hope to re introduce him into the wild in the spring. If she feels he will never be a wild hog again then he can stay with me
