Default HELP!! my hedgehog isn't walking properly...

A little info on my hedgehog, sonic is only about a year old. Its only this morning that I realise she was walking rather strangely. After further inspection, i realised that she was walking leaning to her right. Her right leg seems to be weaker than usual. I really do need advice on how to help my little poor hedgie....

Regardless of the cause you need to take her to the vet.

Unfortunately, I live in Malaysia where the vets here have no in depth knowledge regarding hedgehogs.... I have brought her to several vets which they have ruled out a broken leg and stresses that it was a neurological cause. Hence, i need help and advices on how to deal in this situation...

Did they check her ears? An ear infection can cause them to lean to one side.
Nancy and Lilysmommy like this.
