Unhappy Hind legs problem


My hedgehog Sonic, 6 years old, has some problems walking.

I don’t know if it can be related, but she has been having some fecal problems for the last 3 weeks, as I have explained in this post: https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...quid-poop.html

At the moment, it seems to have stopped. But another problem has appeared…

In the last few days, it looks like she can’t use her hind legs, and sometimes falls on her side. My first thought was WHS, but I have read that it should first appear around months 18-24, and Sonic is far older.

Sometimes in the past she has acted a bit lazy, trying to eat without moving from where she was sitting, but this is completely different.

What could be happening to her?

(Sorry for my English)

Has Sonic been to a veterinarian yet? If not, you should take her in. Injury or even just age related ailments can start to set in. For example, hedgehogs can get arthritis, which like in humans it can be debilitating.
