I wanted to share this video with you all – the miracle tale of Octavia hedgehog.
Octavia came into my hedgehog hospital as a tiny hoglet only 153g. She had a terrible infected bite wound. A vet told me to give up on her but I persevered. It took many weeks to treat the injury with antibiotics and wound treatments. Then she lost all her fur and most of her spines due to ringworm. This is common when a hedgehog is run down, sick or stressed. It was a long journey but eventually Octavia the miracle hedgehog recovered.

UPDATE MAY 2018.
I am so proud to say that Octavia was released back to the wild on 6 May 2018 fit and well. Stay safe miracle girl and create lots of little Octavia’s!
