Spotted in a Penzance garden looking unwell, this little hedgehog was kindly delivered by his finder, Joy. Small, cold and hungry weghing 475g, this young hedgehog was struggling but with a warm bed and a dish of food Alvin soon looked much brighter. Within a couple of days that tiresome chesty cough started, poor Alvin had lungworm and needed to start a course of worming treatment. He struggled to put on weight and needed a repeat course of wormers but eventually Alvin was fighting fit and just needed a spell of reasonable weather to be released. He was collected by Joy on April 28th and returned to her garden ready for a life back in the wild.
