Default A little bit skinny...

Hello all,

Over the past few days I have started to notice that my darling hedgie Chocolate has had sides that are a little bit sunken in. He is 11 months old now. I was starting to worry about him cuz he also doesn't wheel much anymore. He used to wheel all night long and now he will hide under his fleece, come out and wheel, hide under his fleece, come out and wheel, he does this all night long, I know cuz I have recorded him numerous times at night. He currently weighs 9.6 oz.

He is eating normally and his diet hasnt changed. I use the food that i get from my breeder. His cage is always 78 degrees F and he has the carolina storm wheel. I clip his nails all thge time. Nothing has changed in his life but he is just acting differently now.

Any suggestions on what this is??

What kind of food is it? Do you have a light schedule for him?
