Default Update on Miles

Hello again!

Just stopping by for a quick update. Miles has been religiously taking her medication (She LOVES the beef flavor) and she is looking in much better spirits. She has always been a huffy hedgie but she seems much more calm and playful.

I feel extremely lucky that the Ivomec did not do her in. Her health declined so quickly after I gave it to her.

One weird thing I feel I should note: She has a hard-ish scab on her skin. I investigated it, looking closely and maneuvering the scab. The scab (light in color, the size of her quill pore) lifted and with it came a deep string of mucus consistency pus. It literally jiggled like disgusting jello. She did not seem to be in pain or huff around. Is that weird? Has anyone else ever seen that? It was literally just this deeeeeep pore of pus.

Other than that she is doing great so far. She will be seeing the vet soon for another check up.

Thank you!

PitterPatter and Miles

I'm glad she is feeling better.
I don't know about mucous/pus but I'm thinking it could be a possible infection? She may have gotten an infection where one of her quills came out. That's my best guess.
