Childwickbury Christmas Market Frizknits funds New Microscope Compound Trinocular with 5MP Camera!

Frances from Frizknits (https://www.facebook.com/frizknits/) joined us at Childwickbury Christmas Market at our stall this year and through the sales of her knits, and pre orders, funded a new Microscope Compound Trinocular with 5MP Camera and all accessories!

New Microscope Compound Trinocular

This is absolutely amazing :D This is a superb bit of kit that will be used on just about all hedgehogs we rehabilitate. It will be used to view samples of hedgehog poo! Mainly to find out what type of worms a hedgehog has which will help us with administering medication.

I can't wait to start collecting hedgehog poo :D It will take a little time to setup as it will be connected to a computer so we can capture the samples in a digital format. We will then be able to send these sample images off for second opinions in the event we are not 100% sure of the results and to share with you! I'm sure you'd love to see these parasites up close :)


A huge thank you to everyone who purchased from Frizknits and for visiting us at Childwickbury Christmas Market, your support is truly heartwarming.
