Default Not pooping/eating

My hedgehog has stopped eating, he is barely pooping and it is very dark and tarry, and i just noticed some bloody urine. Also it looks as if his underside by his butt is larger than normal and a bit red, which i think is causing him to have trouble walking. Does anyone know what this is? What should I do?

It could be a number of things, but it’s definitely something of concern. An urgent vet visit should be scheduled.

Non of us are vets so we can't really tell you what it if, it doesn't sound good and could be anything. The faster you get him to the vet to have tests done and get a medical view the better.
Let us know what happens and if you need any other help.
