Default Hedgehog drank oil??

Not literally drank it.
Anyway, what happened was I was giving her and olive oil bath and, when I was about to take her out, the mealworms I had been holding for her fell out of my hands and into the bowl of oil. I picked them up and set them on the side, then my little girl literally dashed for them and scoffed them up before I could take them off her!
Will she be okay? She seems fine, I'm just a little bit worried.

That's good to hear!
I didn't think it would, I was just double checking!
She doesn't seem unwell in anyway, just a bit grumpy after being woken up

It shouldn't hurt her except for some loose poop.

There is nothing in olive oil that could hurt her. I was just looking at my container of olive oil, i can't find anything that would harm a hog. She'll be just fine, maybe she even liked it

Haha, she didn't seem to mind the oil, so maybe she did like it!
I'm so glad to know that it won't harm her in anyway though!
