MomLady You can put some flour on the wheel and if you see footprints, you'll know she ran.

Are you sure the wheel is still at the right angle and spins OK? Sometimes they go off the right adjustment and won't spin freely and then your hedgie won't use it.

Otherwise, I'd count kibbles and make sure she's eating, drinking and pooping.

Prickerz I use corn cob litter in her pan that tracks all around the cage. I imagine carefresh would do the same thing... that is how I know my hedgehog was up. There's usually litter on the wheel and on the liner. Just a thought

Do you have a thermometer? You know for sure what the temp is for her?

Is there a light on that didn't used to be on? Maybe even a street light shining in a window can be enough to put some hedgies off their regular activity.

How old is she?

phoenixjay Have you tried counting her kibble to see if she's eating?

Hedgie no longer active..

I am unsure what is going on with my hedgehog. It used to be inevitable that I would wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of her running on her wheel and definitely had to clean it the next morning. That's not the case anymore.. I never can hear my hedgehog at night and she no longer leaves a trace of being up and active like she used to on her wheel.. Her cage stays between 76 and 80 so I know she is warm. Any idea, help, or tips on what might be going on and how to get her back to her normal active self? Thanks!
