Another Question on Hedgie Poo....

I was hoping someone might give me some guidance - I am a new hedgie parent and need a bit of help with little Rocky! I have only had him for a week and a half. When he first came home his poo was normal but by Friday had turned a kind of green colour and was very squishy, although still formed. It's now Thursday and in the last six days he has had full diarrhea and some squishy but more formed ones, all this dark green colour. I've been feeding him the dried food that the breeder gave me, although when I picked him up the breeder also gave me a can of soft cat food and said to feed him that at first because it was easier to digest. That ran out and I couldn't find the same one anywhere so I switched to the dried food (which he loves) and the poo problems began.

He is eating and drinking fine and his beahviour is normal - in the last week while his tummy has been upset he has ripped the cage up twice (his favourite past time it seems) and he is using his wheel. I've tried to feed him canned pumpkin to firm it up but he has ignored it and I don't want to starve the little guy. Can you give Pro-Kolin to hedgehogs for upset stomachs?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated by both myself and little Rocky!!
