    The vet did an x-ray and found two masses. They gave her liquids and foods and she promptly threw up, though they think they might have given her too much too quickly. Right before they were bringing her in for exploratory surgery they saw she'd pooped about 2 inches worth of poop and the masses seemed to be gone. We can still feel two lumps in her abdomen, but the vet thinks they might be her kidneys? She's home with us now, but not really eating much, and is still very restless and acting a bit odd. We haven't seen her poop, but we found her with green/dark foam around her mouth that we think might mean she's eaten poop if poop came out while she was in her igloo. We syringe-fed her a teaspoon of water and a teaspoon of unseasoned pumpkin mixed with water and a bit of olive oil. Is there anything else we should do? Do you think this is just constipation or something more?

    I'm so sorry to be bothering you, I just saw that you offered some expert advice on the previous threads concerning hedgehog constipation. Our 2 year old hedgehog Frozone had a very scary vet visit yesterday. She'd been acting strangely for the past three days - up during the day frantically wandering around her cage, not eating very much food or drinking, and pooping strange very thin poops when she did poop. We brought her to the vet after feeling a large lump beneath the skin (there was no visible lump) of her abdomen near her left leg.
