Everything she was prescribed is oral so it makes it kind of harder so he said just try my best if it gets on her fur she might lick it up. I honestly think it was the litter because I got it about 1 1/2 days before the infection showed but who knows.
Here check this link, it is a tutorial and guidance notes for syringe feeding.

Oh sorry I did mean to comment on the litter too. I'm not familiar with the brand but could also be the cause, was it a clumping type? Just use paper towels in the tray for now until her skin heals. Later on if you want to try a litter, yesterday news is safe to use. I use it and have not had any priblems with it. Also don't bathe her in anything but water (unless the vet has given you something to use). When she is better only use baby washes like Aveeno oatmeal baby wash, it is very gentle and safe for hedgies. Hoping she gets better soon, keep us posted.

Ok thank y’all so much for all the iadvice. I’ve had a couple of exotic animals but they never got sick like this! I definently will watch the video. The vet gave me a lot of crap about handling her like I never touched her when I’ve only had her for a week and 3 of those days she was in so much pain. I let her out all the time and I’m using gloves since she’s so agitated but he repeated it at least 7 times!
I’ll litter train her once this is so over with and use that newspaper brand.
And yea I will use just water, she seems to calm down in a warm bath I think I helps soothe it

Can confirm, Meowmix is crap. Hopefully she takes to the Hills r/d without much issue but as you get towards the end of it you should gradually switch it to something where, at minimum the first ingredient is a meat and not a form of corn. There's a list elsewhere on this site but I recommend a mix of small breed dog food(I use Nutro Ultra) and indoor cat food(I use Chicken Soup for the Soul).
