This sad story might save the life of another hedgehog.UPDATE: little boy died about an hour ago. At leat he was warm and comfortable.

This little boy arrived this morning. As you can see, he is too weak to curl up and is extremely dehydrated. He is also cold. This is the result of being left out overnight to ‘wait and see’ after being seen curled up outside during the day. I have given him warmed subcut fluids and made him comfortable in an incubator with a little fleece over him. Even so, this little chap won’t make it. It’s too late for him. It’s Hedgehog Awareness Week this week so please, for me and for this little boy, SPREAD THE WORD. IF A HEDGEHOG IS OUT DURING THE DAY IT IS LOOKING FOR HELP. DON’T WAIT, not for a night or a day or an hour. GET IT TO A RESCUE ASAP. A female building a nest or feeding young will be moving energetically, with purpose! She WILL NOT be laid down or sunbathing or having a rest. This little boy’s organs are failing because he was left. PLEASE, help me spread the word. Thank you 🦔.

Please share if you know anyone who lives in this area. Thank you.***UPDATE: Oliver is now home safe and sound. Thx for all your concern, comments and shares 😻***

***CALLING ALL OUR EAST DEAN FOLLOWERS***

Oliver has been missing from the East Dean area since around 10pm on 14-June-21. He is only 1 year old, he is a indoor cat that has never been outside but he escaped. He is neutered and microchipped. He’s very shy and afraid of people he doesn’t know so if approached he may run. He is most likely to be hiding somewhere so please help us if you are local by checking bushes and hedgerows, garages, sheds and gardens - anywhere that a nervous, young cat might think of to hide. Please share this post with any friends or family who also live locally. Many thanks 🐱🙏🏻

This is interesting, 21 degrees doesn't seem that hot, especially if the sun isn't out.This is Nala.

She is a young fit Labrador who was playing football on a overcast 21⁰c day.

At 1.30pm she was rushed to Hook Vets with heat stroke.

Her temperature was at a whopping 41.3⁰c. A dogs normal temperature range is 38 - 39⁰c

Heat stroke can cause irreversible damage or even death. Thankfully her owner noticed and reacted quickly and Nala is doing well 💜 His quick actions saved her life.

Dogs that are more prone to heat stroke are old dogs, overweight dogs, flat faced breeds and puppies. However any dog of any age or breed or fitness can get heat stroke.

Signs of heat stroke are:
⚠️ Faster, heavier breathing
⚠️ Excessive thirst and drooling
⚠️ Increased heart rate and pulse rate
⚠️ Dark coloured gums/ tounge (red/purple)
⚠️ Glassy eyes
⚠️ Staggering or weakness
⚠️ Seizures
⚠️ Unconsciousness

If you think your dog has heat stroke DO NOT throw cold water on them as this can cause the body to go into shock.

On warm days you can help your dogs by:
✅ Restricting exercise
✅ Make sure they have access to cool, shaded areas
✅ Give them access to fresh water
✅ Walking them first thing in the morning or last thing at night when it's cooler
✅ If your pet is over weight start them on a weight loss journey

Please share this post to raise awareness
