Default Help hedgie injured can’t go to vet til morning

I hadn’t gotten my hedgie outbin about 2 days. It was cleaning day. Took him out he was very pissy and bit me. He never bites me. Unless I have food or smelly soap left on my hands. But would lick. I noticed he had his toy ball against him balled up. I put him in his bath water for him to unball. It was stuck on his leg!!!
My fianc้ cut the ball off and it’s indented. He can put a little weight on it. He’s called down now that’s its off.
I don’t know what to do other that keep him wrapped up in a towel. Then put him in his cage with a towel on the bottom with just house, food and water.

Also I can already tell it’s infected. He had a patch of skin one time that got infected and it looks like that.

I just dropped him off at the vet since their only exotics vet is going to be in surgery this morning. So they will call me when they look at him. :C

Oh no poor little thing, was it like one of those cat balls with the gaps or something?

I'm glad you managed to get him to a vet so quickly. Hopefully it's not too serious and they can give him some medication if it is infected. Let us know how it goes at the vet.
