Virtual Gift – Treat a Hedgehog with Balloon Syndrome


Over 3,000 hedgehogs come through our doors every year. The ones suffering from balloon syndrome are easy to spot, as they are huge, spherical and unable to curl up even a little – making them vulnerable to predators. Whilst the exact cause is unknown, it is normally associated with trauma and can affect hedgehogs of al ages.

Treatment involves extracting the air from the different ‘balloons’ across the body. A course of antibiotics is also required, along with any fluids and other treatments they may require.

Your gift will help fund the work of the Wildlife Hospital.
