Is she acting any differently aside from the decreased appetite?

It could be an ear infection. Those happen. Its good that you have a vet appointment. I will warn you not to panic if you notice some wobbliness or coordination issues if its an ear infection. The inner ear deals with balance and an ear infection will throw all of that off. For now just wait for the vet. It could be your hedgie just has dirty little ears that need a through cleaning.

If its an ear infection a round of antibiotics should clear it right up. Ear infections are also pretty painful so if you notice some grumpiness don't worry, it just hurts and she will express that to you. Once it clears up everything should go back to normal.

Best of luck!

It could be an ear infection. Could also be a build-up of ear wax- if it gets really bad it will ooze out of the ears and is a bright orange colour with a sticky texture. Pliny had that happen last year, took him to see his vet who gave us some ear drops and instructions on how to clean it up.

Quinn has gone through 2 ear infections. If it is an ear infection I will warn you that it is extremely difficult to get the ear drops in deep enough. We ended up with just doing oral antibiotics for the second one. I hope your hedgie gets better soon!
