Default Question about syringe feeding

What do I do if my hedgehog won't open her mouth for me to syringe feed her?

Default Re: Question about syringe feeding

It's a bit easier to syringe from the side, instead of the front. If that helps at all. For Zoey, I would gently put the tip on the side of her mouth & squeeze out just a little bit. For syringing pedialyte, I would just put it to her lips & start to slowly squeeze, she would drink it that way.

I'm sure that others who have much more experience will come along & help more.
