Default Runny poop and foamy mouth

I went to clean my hedgehog out today and he had done lots of runny poops, his mouth also seemed a bit foamy. I haven't changed his food recently so I know it isn't that. Could it be to do with the sudden nice weather and getting too hot? Will appreciate any help. Thanks in advanced.

Runny poop is usually a gastrointestinal issues or stress reaction. How hot is it in his cage? Is he eating normally? Has anything else in or around his cage changed?

His cage was 25 degrees yesterday. He seems to be eating normally and there are no changes in his cage

What bedding do you use, could he have eaten something?

When my boy has had runny or softer poop is when he consumes too much water or one time I gave him too much pumpkin! ><. Habe you given him a new treat recently, or just more of one?

25C isn't too hot so I doubt it is a change in heat. He would be splatting if he was getting too hot and uncomfortable.

I use fleece bedding so nothing for him to eat there. I also haven't given him anything new. I've got him booked in to see the vet this evening. Hopefully he's fine!

Take a fresh poop sample if you can. Keep it refrigerated until you go.

Thanks for the replies guys. Turns out he's just got diarrhoea and everything else is fine. He's been given some bland food and drops to go in the food. This should sort him out but if it's not gone by the end of the week then I need to take him back.
