Default My hedge has been 'wobbly' ever since I got him.

I got my hedgehog from someone when he was around 8 months old, I got him in march 2013

Shortly after he started acting kind of 'wobbly' and always seeming dopey whilst walking. But as of about two weeks again it's gotten worse and it seems like he's kind of dragging his back legs and when he's turning around he sort of sits on his bum and struggles quite a lot.

Is it WHS? if so, how long does it take for it to fully take effect and paralyze him?

If I were to record a video of him walking tomorrow, could someone watch it for me and let me know?

A video would be helpful. Does he tip over and then struggle to get back to his feet?

Tipping over, yep.
I can't let him walk on my laminate flooring without him constantly tiping forward and hitting his teeth off the floor

Are you sure he's not stretching? Hedgehogs do that a lot when they're placed on the floor for some reason lol..

Does he wobble while walking on rough ground or firm liners? I just wanna make sure he's not walking or standing on slippery ground. As sometimes there are hedgies that tend to slip or split legs while walking on things like tiles etc.
