Default Worried! He chewed up his pee pad?

So I’m a new hedgie owner and my hedgehogs name is Archie. I was told using unscented dog pee pads under fleece liner was something normal, and Ive since been using pee pads with no issues. However recently, I guess Archie had a party because he dug to the bottom and tore up his pee pad. He is a finicky eater anyway, but I am very worried that he ingested some. He seems to still be pooping frequently and just fine, I haven’t seen any debris in his poop he & he doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort. Should I be worried? I will not be using pee pads anymore!!

I have deleted your two other identical threads, please don't post multiple threads with the same question.

This is why I don't recommend pee pads for hedgehogs. I would just watch him for any changes in behavior, eating or pooping. If you see any changes they take him to the vet.
