Hello, my hedgehog Cookie has had trouble. He dosent eat or drink we have been feeding him baby food through a eye drop but he dosent even want to eat that. Even worse, he is weak and cant walk properly. Hes only one and hes got injures (almost like burns) with no fur and his feet are covered in blood so we wash him daily. I fear he will die very soon. He barley has any teeth and breaths heavly. He is also covered in feces and has been peeing green. This is very bad.Please Help. This has been going on for 3 week. We cant take him to vets right now I just hope he lasts till xmas. 😰

Ok a couple questions. What is causing the hair loss and sores on the feet? What type of bedding are you using? Some types like cedar can cause allergic reations and hair loss. The oils in some wood bedding is very hard on the skin. Have you tried feeding warm canned cat food watered down a little, and maybe put just a little honey in with it too, with the eyedropper? If he is not eating how is he getting covered in feces? What has happened with his teeth ? If he is only one year old he shouldnt have teeth problems unless hes been on extremly hard food.
