Yukidama's mama Oh I'm sorry to hear that Sabrina :'( at least you now know you did everything you could to help him and can now make him as comfortable as possible. Wishing the best for him ♡

sabrina Update: We took him to a new vet and found out he has bone cancer in his leg. We cannot amputate his leg because the vet said that it would most likely spread. We’re going to try to make him as comfortable as we can for as long as possible

sabrina I was thinking that might be the case! I still need to keep an eye out for a new vet for him. I’ll be sure to let you know what it is when I do get him x rayed! Thank you for the reply and good wishes ♡

Yukidama's mama Aw poor thing, could it be a dislocation? In any case you need to get him seen again by a different vet and have them look it/take X-rays like nikki suggested. Keep us posted, I hope he recovers soon! ♡

sabrina I think that’s what’s best for him. I just hope they can actually tell me what’s wrong, thank you

nikki I would start calling every vet within a two hour drive and find one that will look at him and do x-rays.

PLEASE help me!! Injured upper leg or hip

So, a week ago, I noticed that my hedgehog had his right leg bone kind of sticking upwards whenever he lays down. My mom thought he was compensating for his other side because he has a large cyst (which is non-cancerous, according to my vet) on the left side of his body. I tried to help him by massaging his leg to try to ease any pain, but a few days after, I saw that he threw up and then I noticed that he wasnít walking normally at all. Instead of using the bottom of his foot, he limps on the top/side of it so that his toenails are on the ground. I havenít noticed any bruising around his leg, but his upper leg bone is still sticking out. And because of the awkward way he walks, he sometimes accidentally rolls himself onto his back. He hasnít been running for about a year now but I thought it was due to his cyst and that it was difficult for him to run because of it. I brought him to the vet as soon as I could and they didnít really tell me what was wrong. Iím not sure if they checked his leg at all because they said they couldnít look at it too well because he was huffy and scared. They just told me that it was probably because he is reaching the end of his life since heís 4 years old and gave me a pain medication for his pain. But they never performed any x-rays on him or anything, so how can they be sure his age is whatís wrong? I have no idea if there are any better vets where I live. I just want to know whatís wrong with him so I can help him or even just keep him comfortable for as long as I can. Maybe itís an injury that can be fixed? He still walks around his house but itís hard for him to put his hurt leg down. I donít know what this is, what to do or where to bring him. I just really need some help, to figure out whatís wrong with him and help him. Thanks
