The European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) is the mammalian species most frequently presented to wildlife centres and veterinary practices. It is also a species that is increasingly endangered. 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.
