Wobbliness is listed as an early symptom in many hedgehog care websites, but from all I've read hibernation, injury, tumors, strokes and nutritional deficiency can also cause the same symptom.

Someone experienced could help you if you post a little background of the sick hedgehog along with his symptoms.

I'm sorry he's sick.

sad to say but he really is sick.. his breathing is faster than my other hedgehogs.. as if he's having a fever of some sort.. he eats less kibbles of cat food though he still has his appetite for superworms..

As Deneen said, he needs to see a vet now. There's no way to tell what's wrong with him but it sounds very serious.

Also, superworms aren't said to be safe unless you cut the head off (ick! D. Just in case you didn't know.

i've read superworms isn't safe in terms of they can bite our pets.. is that what you mean by superworms not being safe? or there is something else?

Yes, unless you cut their head off they can bite as the hedgie is trying to consume it.

What about a vet that who sees small animals like guinea pigs, etc? Better than nothing, no?
