Default Re: Discharge From ears. Help please

It could be an ear infection. Those happen. Its good that you have a vet appointment. I will warn you not to panic if you notice some wobbliness or coordination issues if its an ear infection. The inner ear deals with balance and an ear infection will throw all of that off. For now just wait for the vet. It could be your hedgie just has dirty little ears that need a through cleaning.

If its an ear infection a round of antibiotics should clear it right up. Ear infections are also pretty painful so if you notice some grumpiness don't worry, it just hurts and she will express that to you. Once it clears up everything should go back to normal.

Best of luck!
