Badger Trust issues badger emergency care guide

Badger Trust‘s new guide, ‘Badger Emergency Care’, gathers together helpful information for vets and local badger groups about badger care. The guide has been written with support from experienced vets and badger experts, and the charity hopes it will lead to more effective communication between everyone involved and better care for badgers throughout their rescue and rehabilitation.

Badger Trust works with fifty local badger groups and local wildlife rescue centres daily to help injured or poorly badgers.   There is obviously a range of experience when dealing with badgers so the guide aims to provide vets in general practice with basic information and tools to provide emergency care to badger casualties successfully.  

Badger Trust welcomes any comments on the guide and looks forward to local badger groups, vets and rescue centres working together to help these wonderful creatures.

Sally Jones, Badger Trust Groups Co-ordinator, commented:

“We are keen every injured badger gets the best care possible and hope our ‘Badger Emergency Care’ guide will help everyone involved in badger care.”
