Default Constipation??

Hi all!I took my hedgehog out today and she proceeded to pee and poop on me, which is HIGHLY unlike her, she's only done it twice I think. I put her back in her cage and she went straight to her sleepy area so after a few minutes I took her out again, when she again tried to poop on me, I put her in her litter box and she stayed like that for probably a few minutes. She was good after that, but near the end of when I had her out, she seemed to be trying to push out something more (gross I know, but just the facts) and so I put her back. Do you think she is constipated? I am going to get her some pumpkin to see if she MIGHT eat some, but she probably won't so any other suggestions?

You could try putting her in a warm bath. The warm water can make them poop.

Just make the water shallow. Just enough to dip their feet in. Igor was constipated and refused to eat pumpkin, so I used the water trick and it worked

I gave her a spoo of pumpkin next to her food and she ate like half of it! She must have really liked it haha!! How often should I give it to her? And I got flaxseed oil, how much should I give her? The tablets were more expensive Nad I'm just going to give it to her once a week like you recommended too.
