Most rehabbers now use this method to establish exactly what is wrong with Hedgehogs coming into care, rather than using routine use of worming and antibiotics which are haphazard and ineffective. Vale Wildlife Hospital (http://www.valewildlife.org.uk/#) has led the way in introducing this method and these are their instructions for how to carry out a faecal sample test. They are also happy to carry out testing for rehabbers who do not have access to a microcsope.

On their website, here – http://www.valewildlife.org.uk/#/rehabbers-area/4545863416 you can also find out which drugs to use to treat the various types of parasite, the required drug doses and more photos.
