Default Re: New hedgehog owner! Several questions!

If he's pooping, it means he's eating, even if it's not a noticeable amount. Sometimes transition can cause a few days of not eating very much, it's just part of getting adjusted. Watch out for anything else, like lethargy, but as long as it's just an appetite thing and he's still eating a small amount, I wouldn't worry. It should go away in another few days. (Actually one of the two new additions I picked up this past Saturday is going through the same thing.) You can try to entice him with some treats. Do you know what kind of food the breeder gave you, and do you plan on switching to something else? Depending on what kind it is, he may be more interested in another kind of kibble instead.

USDA licensed breeder in Port Orchard, WA.
