Default Re: Adopted an abused hedgie, seeking advice.

When I got my new hedgie, which was from a pet store, she did not eat for a few days after coming home.
I agree, a vet visit is definitely in order, not only for the mites, but just to make sure everything is OK including her teeth. I would be a bit reluctant to go straight to syringe feeding. She is probably just scared. You could also try giving a few other types of food, some like watermelon for example....You can also give Pedialyte if you think she is dehydrated.
How did you find out about this hedgehog?
