I'm a new hedgie owner, we just got Lily last week and she is about 7 weeks old now.
My concern is that she seems to be with constipation. 3 days ago I noticed her poop had a mucus coating with red in it. She did have die in some of her food. Now she seems to be straining to go, with no avail.
Lily hasn't eaten much, meal worms mostly because this is all I can really get her to eat
She is drinking, and I am monitoring it and have even given water through a syringe.
She is quilling right now.
She doesn't seem really pissy but not overly reactive to anything, nose and such. Her quills are mostly laying down. Lily seems to have bursts of energy...she ran on her wheel last night and there was poop on it and hung out with me tonight and wasn't lathargic.
I even tried a bath, no poop....
She is just not herself...am I overreacting and at which point to I take Lily to a vet?? Tomorrow morning?
Thanks in advance for the advice
