Default My african pygmy hedgehog lola

Hi please could anyone help ive had my african pygmy hedgehog lola for nearly 2 weeks now and was wondering if her urine should be as dark as it is ( its a dark yellowish) she does seem fit and well and is eating well she drinks out of a bowl so cant tell how much she is taking and know that not drinking enough can make your urine darker. Do you think this could be the case many thanks

Welcome to the forums! So glad you joined us! Your hedgies urine should be a pale yellow. Any dark urine could be a sign of dehydration- is your hedgie urinating on paper towel? I would try and have your lil one urinate on the towel or dab at an area of urine to get an idea of the true color. Also, it may be a good idea to schedule a wellness vet visit to get a once over. The vet might be able to give you a better idea on your hedgies hydration levels. Sorry I can't be of more help- good luck!
