They were swiftly taken to Vets4pets Halifax three weeks ago where they were taken in by Sally Brook, Practise Manager for Vets4Pets based in Halifax, and a foster mum for Halifax Hedgehog Rescue.

Sadly Blue was the only one of the litter to survive but he has been making progress.

Sally has been hand rearing the hoglet round the clock and he recently moved onto lapping a mixture of puppy mousse with goats milk.
