Just Found Out How Vets Anaesthetise Hedgehogs

Ever seen a hedgehog being anesthetized? Turns out it’s the cutest thing ever! They are so tiny that vets use this small animal anaesthetic chamber to keep them pain free during medical intervention.

In case you come across an injured hedgehog, check out this Care and Treatment of Sick and Injured Hedgehogs guide from The British Hedgehog Preservation Society. They have done a great job putting all the essential info together for everyone to freely access and learn.
