Default Worried about my little one

A few weeks ago my hedgehog stopped using his front left paw, I took him to the vet and he was giving medication for his paw and different food until he started using it again. Now that he's eating different food he's been pooping less, and now there's a flesh colored thing sticking out of his butt. It was poop on it but it also has fur on it. Is this poop or something else?

Could you provide a picture? It kind of sounds like a rectal prolapse if you are saying skin is coming out of his bottom. I would take him to the vet again.

You need to get him back to the vet for another check up. What you're describing doesn't sound normal.
