Often veterinary surgeons are very poorly equipped to deal with these animals. This lecture will include some background ecology and biology of the species, how to handle and examine hedgehogs and information on the diagnosis and treatment of common hedgehog clinical conditions.
A hot meal will be served prior to the start of the talk at 7.15pm prompt with the talk commencing at 7.45pm.
