Default Hedgie hurt tooth

Last night our hog got their tooth stuck on a blanket they were pulling on with their mouth. They panicked and pulled and scratched at it and in the process gave themselves a scratch and their tooth started to bleed. The bleeding stopped quickly and our guy seemed to not be super bothered by the event, but today he is a little skittish and seems to not be feeling the best. Unfortunately, our vet is closed over the weekend so we aren’t able to get him seen until Monday. Has anyone ran into this before or have any advice? We are thinking we will pick up extra mealies and some soft food in the meantime

Soft food until you can get into a vet, then veterinary visit to have the mouth examined.

It isn't normal for them to easily pull a tooth out like that, something is causing the tooth to be loose. I'd have the mouth examined and the rest of the teeth checked to ensure they are healthy.
