Default Weak wobbly hedgehog

Hi Im new to hedgehogs
We have had 2 for a few months now. Noticed the one hasn’t eaten in a few days. I took her out to check her and she is really weak. Licking some and very wobbly. She is pretty friendly but won’t let me mess
With her much. Huffing. And shaking a lot. Room temp is 74. Not sure what to do. Thanks

She needs to be syringe-fed immediately and you need to keep syringe-feeding her until she's eating on her own again. Aim to get at least 25-30ml of food in her per day. You'll also want to get her into the vet ASAP to see why she stopped eating. For future reference, you want to take notice as soon as they've gone one night without eating & if they don't eat the next night, start syringing. Hedgehogs don't do well without food for longer than 1-2 days.

Here's some more information on syringing - https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...ng-sticky.html
