That's just heartbreaking. You did the best that could have been done for him. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I wanted to thank everyone for your support. The vet did an animal autopsy and it turned out that he had a parasite called "Coccidia" where it ate away at his fat storage. When he got the UTI and got better after the antibiotics he needed more fat but the parasite ate away at it and he developed ulcers where one was popped and this caused him to have internal bleeding.

A symptom of this is very fast breathing, just to give everyone else a heads up for younger hedgies. This happens when the baby is taken away from its mom too early.

And a picture of Owen is the signature.
