Default Help! Mommy hedgie is wobbling and falling down

FREAKING OUT! Cookie went out of the nest wobbling and not walking properly! She was falling all over the place and had to drag herself to her water bowl. What do I do?! T^T Babies are 11 days old. Mommy has shown weakness before this but not this bad.

I don't have experience with this so hopefully someone who knows more than me sees this and can help, but first I'd say get her to a vet. I would also make sure she is warm enough and getting enough daylight so her body isn't trying to hibernate. Good luck! I'm wishing for the best for you!

She is 6 months old, 4 babies, and is on a mix kibble of RC Fit 32 and RC Kitten kibbles. I also give her at least 10 mealies daily, checken or fish when available, some cottage cheese and my blended mix. I haven't been able to give her my mix or the cottage cheese these past few days because of the flood. I'm bringing her to the vet tomorrow since the vet was absent today. We've been hit by a calamity so i'm guessing the vet took some time off as well. hopefully he's in tomorrow.

It may be a calcium issue but that usually happens within the first couple of days. Try the crushed Tums but with it being this far from birth, I'd lean more towards a uterine infection or retained fetus. Hope you can get her to the vet asap.

Sounds bad. Take the advice from the people who posted earlier then me, but i would say get her to a vet too. That's the first thing I would do. I hope for the best and i will be praying for you and cookie.
