On 8 August me daughter's builder found a baby hedgehog in her loft. Course she brought it to me to see if I could help it. I weighed it and it was 8 3/4 ounces and very dehydrated.I managed to get it to drink and built a house for it and a 6x4 foot run. That little hedgehog (we called it Ivan after the builder that found him) was eating every day 5 ounces of dog meat, 1 ounce of ground up dog mixer buscuits and 1 ounce of a hedgehog additive food. Boy did he put on weight. When we released him he weighed 27 ounces which will enable him to survive the winter hibernation. I still have the house for him if he wishes to use it and put out 5 ounces of dog meat each evening which some hedgehog is eating. Maybe it is Ivan, I would like to think so.

Suss, did he take to you, or was he very shy? You gave him a good start, now let's hope your winter is an easy one. Good luck to little Ivan!
