Default Help hedgie has lump on mouth

Helps hedge has a lump on his mouth. It is bleeding quite a bit. It has been there for a few weeks and I can't go to the vet for it. He's acting normal and eating fine though. Can anyone tell me what this might be and if I can treat it? I have pictures

It looks like a tumour and its something you can't treat yourself. He needs to see a vet asap. Why can't you take him to one??

That looks awful and there's nothing we can do, and nothing you can do. You need to take him to the vet - it's NOT an option at this point. If you can't find a way to get him to a vet to be looked at, then you need to look for a rescue somewhere in your area and see if they would be willing to take him in and get him the vet care he needs. Regardless of what the lump is (and I agree it looks like a tumor), nothing can be done until a vet diagnoses him and gives you further options on what can be done to help him.
MomLady and like this.
