Question 10 year old male sluggish and not eating

Hi there folks,

I have a male lesser tenrec called Winston who turns 11 this year, recently I have noticed that he seems completely off his food (tried meal worm, fruits veggies and small amounts of cat food).

His weight still seems ok so I presume he is grazing on a night but he does not want to come out of his log - the problem here is that he needs his nails clipping as some are curling round. He also seems to wobble from side to side seeming unstable on his feet.

I presume because of his age this is probably pretty normal but I just wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar with their little critters?

Any advice is much appreciated
