Is my hedgehog dehydrated??
I bought this little guy about 4 days ago and I started to notice his poop is very soft and not well formed, it was fine the first two days. I have been making sure he drinks. he won't let me pinch his skin to check and I tried offering watermelon but he wouldn't eat, help?

Is he drinking?

Yes, I think he eats more than he drinks though

what food are you feeding him? it can be stress or diet related.

Dehydration usually causes hard dry poops so he's probably not dehydrated. The soft poops are probably from the stress of a new home.

I've been feeding him some hedgehog food I got at the petstore along with some watermelon, but I hope it's just stress I schedule an appoinmemt with the vet just in case

What was the previous owner or breeder feeding him?
