Someone is mad at me...
So today I took Ichiro to his first vet appointment... He did not like it!
He was fine happy walking around but when the vet scruffedd him to check his teeth and listening to his heart, that's when it went downhill... He never balls around me but boy was he fast... She could only check his teeth and he managed to ball up and it was a very tight ball.
I asked her for a bowl and I put him in some water and he unbaked a little but when I tried to grab him he balled up again, he did not care he was in water... He finally came out of the ball and I picked him up to dry him and she was able to finish the exam.
When we got home he wanted no part of me. Tonight I'll give him some mealies as a peace offer.
About the vet... The jury is still out, she seems to know about hedgies, she has only seen 4 toed hedgies and never one with a mask; Ichiro is Algerian.
She suggested gas if he didn't come out of the ball and didn't know about the water trick.
She suggested adding some hedgehog food to his diet because it has insects, I told her I give him bugs and his cat food but she was very into the hedgie food, I left before she could give me the name and also suggested some green cat treat from time to time to clean his teeth.
I hope I am lucky enough for him to be healthy and never needing a vet but let's wait and see...
