Default Hedgehog stopped eating, on antibiotic shots

Hi all!

Over the past few days my hog stopped eating her pellets entirely, but would still eat her treat food when offered (boiled egg, boiled chicken, veg etc).

When I weighed on Tuesday she had lost 30g or so. So we went to the vet.

He did a full exam & x-rays & the only unusual thing was quite a bit of gas in her intestines.

So we’ve done a 3 day course of antibiotics, vitamins & one dose of cortisone. She has also been on Hills A/D for the past 3 days to put back on some weight. Since the first shot she is back to eating like a horse, which I hope continues now that we have stopped with the injections.

Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
