What to do if you find an injured hedgehog. 

Contact the relevant CRAS in Italy immediately (Wild Animal Recovery Center).

Or in another country your nearest hedgehog rescue centre.

In dealing with this topic, we cannot go into details because ONLY a vet or the employees of a qualified center can proceed with treating the injuries of a wild animal in Italy and most European countries.


In fact, it is forbidden to practice veterinary techniques on any wild animal.


The most important and best thing to do is to deliver the injured animal as soon as possible to expert and qualified hands.

If this is not possible, disinfect the wound and urgently take it to a vet.


 They will provide first aid and then deliver it to the authorities.
