Default Is my hedgie too small?


I have a six-month-old grey reverse pinto and she eats tons every day. Her bowl is always full (a mixture of three different cat foods, mealies, fruits and some veg), but she's still so tiny. Her sides don't chubb out like ( ) but they're not ) ( either. I know hedgies often have a 'runner's body', but currently she weighs only 172g and I thinks that's very small compared to other posts I've read.

Should I be concerned?

As long as the sides aren't sinking in and that she's eating, I don't think you should be concerned. If you're really worried perhaps you can add in cat food with a little bit of higher fat %
