Exclamation I'm in dire need of assistance before I take my hedgehog to the vet..

Lately, my hedgehog Quilbert has been acting strange. His poop has been green and sticky, I didnt realize the food I had for him was so awful, so i switched back to Purina One. It's gotten better lately but he's not eating as much as he use too. Plus, hes began to start pooping while you're trying to handle him, which is completely not like him to do that. Am I just freaking out or is there something wrong with him?

Green poop can be caused by stress, but also intestinal issues. I would take your hedgie to the vet if it persists longer than 2-3 days. Persephone has green poop for like 2 days after I majorly change something (when I brought her home, then again when I changed her food to a holistic mix) but it went back to normal two days later).
The pooping while hes being handled is somewhat normal, it happens with my hedgehog.

I'd take a stool sample in to the vet, at the very least, possibly Quilbert as well. For the stool sample, make sure you get as fresh a sample as possible - it should be at least from the same day that you take it to the vet's, but if he poops right before you guys go or at the vet, that'd be even better.
