Default Sick hedgehog

Hi ! My 2 year old hedgie recently stopped eating his food . He now will only eat treats . I have tried a different food with no luck. He is now peeing a very dark green and his skin is gone really grey instead of pink. He still has energy and like I said will eat his treats of mealworms and dried worms and fruits from the pet store. Help I dont know what is wrong with him .

You have to take him into the vet ASAP.

The pee and skin color could be from dehydration and the fact that he’ll only eat poor quality treats means he’s losing necessary nutrients. A professional examination should be your first choice, but you also should try to get fluids in him by syringe.

Green urine is a serious problem and the hedgehog needs to see a veterinarian immediately as it almost always is an extremely serious health condition that is causing it and most of the time when we see it posted on these forums the hedgehog quickly deteriorates and passes soon after.

Of three cases that immediately come to mind, 2 were liver related (liver failure & fatty liver disease) the other a very serious bladder infection.
