Too true. Once you have had baby hedgehogs in the house to help them hibernate, you DO want to care for them personally. Ours did not have broken legs, but one of the three had pneumonia and coughed and coughed. Poor little "Erika".
She walked off a happy hedgehog in spring of 2001 .
That "depressed" looking one might have been "Erika", how am I to know today. They all look the same, more or less. Her brothers "Zecki" and "Erizo" walked away after only two days, and some vet's treatment to fight their ticks and worms, but "Erika" stayed with us all winter.
