Video of Her attempting to walk.

What do you guys think? This is better than last night. Does that look like WHS to you? Or does it look more like the lack of food?

EDIT: Don't mind the rug. I have 2 dogs and a cat lol. It isn't always in the best condition.

Looks like a very sick and weak girl to me. By the looks of her skin she has lost a lot of weight.
She is a sick gal and it's not WHS.

I really don't know how many times it has to been said...It is not WHS.

She is sick, weak, dehydrated and omg she looks anorexic, you can see all the loose skin on her.

She looks exactly like the hedgehog I was giving critical care to last week for the weight part.

Please handle her more gently and please do not try to make her walk again until she is ready too.

Is she in an aquarium? If she is that is a bad thing, they have barely any air circulation, and she needs all the air she can get.

Someone suggested the video to see what it looks like, havent taken her out otherwise to feed her.

The tank has no lid. The side are plexy glass, but there is no top.

she does not need a tank even without a lid it stops airflow. she needs a vet bad. where are you located.

Connor, she has been to the vet and the vet is misdiagnosing her of having WHS. Jen is following advice we are giving her for syringing her food and water. Please read back on other threads about this issue.

So even without a lid, it's bad?

If she ends up recovering from this, I plan on switching the tank style to ones similar on here anyways.

Yes even tanks with no lids have very very bad ventilation. I wouldnt be even putting her in there now.
