Unhappy I think my hedgehog just passed away ):

Hey guys, my hedgehog, who will turn one tomorrow, has been ill the past few weeks. I posted earlier that she has been limping, so I took her to the vet and he said she was perfectly healthy, but then the next week she started wobbling and not eating at all. She was getting worse and worse, so I thought maybe she was trying to hibernate, so I made sure she was always warm, and I would cuddle with her in my bed on the heat blanket. I took her to the doctor this week, and for three days straight he gave her some fluids, and she was definitely more lively. She still wasn't eating on her own, though, so I fed her with a medicine dropper. She seemed to be getting better, but today we were lying on my heat blanket in bed again. She had been sleeping all day and still was quite lethargic. She was moving her head slightly but mostly just sleeping. About 30minutes later, I got up and placed her in her bed. She was a little stiff, but I didn't think much of it. But when I came back to pick her up 10minutes later, she was in the same position, sprawled out with her legs in different directions. She wasn't moving at all, and her limbs were incredibly stiff. I immediately placed her back in bed, but after an hour, she was still in the same state, and from whatever I could tell, she wasn't breathing. I'm praying she is just hibernating, but when she is sprawled out and not curled in a ball, I'm doubting it. Any advice? I am so incredibly depressed.

Wait. This literally just broke my heart. No advice, unfortunately, since I've only had my hedgie for a month, but my thoughts are with you. This is so rough. <3

I am so sorry to hear that. It does sound like she passed away.

I am so sorry. I'm glad you were with her so very close to the end.
