Yukidama's mama Oh I so sorry to hear it's cancerous

I'm glad she's still active and it isn't effecting her much. Wishing all the best for her, give her lots of cuddles, attention and mealies ♡

LuckFupus458 I am so sorry about your little hedgie's diagnosis. Sending all healing, peaceful and loving vibes your way <3

Amy Symes It is in fact cancer. Considering she is three and a half, the surgery is $500, and that the vet doubts they would be able to get it all, she will not be going through surgery. As for now, she is living her best life, and is very happy. She is enjoying roaming around the living room twice a day, and eating lots of treats. Once she stops eating and drinking, I will sadly have to put her down.

Yukidama's mama I was worried it could've been an oral tumor

Vet sounds really knowledgeable so hopefully she's in good hands and the medication helps some. Would surgery be an option? My vet previously showed me images of hedgies with oral cancer and some even had surgery to remove it.

Well that's good she at least likes the medication! ^^
Hoping for the best for her, keep us posted on her condition ♡

Amy Symes Thanks for the concern! The vet said she is otherwise very healthy, and still has a good quality of life, so that’s good. The is unsure of what the lump is, so she sent a sample to the lab, and in the meantime I have anti inflammatorys and anti biotics to give her. Luckily she was very good for the vet, and tries to eat the syringe when giving the medicine, which makes my life easier!

nikki It's most likely an oral tumor. They seem to develop almost overnight and unfortunately are very common in hedgehogs.

Yukidama's mama You need to find an emergency animal hospital or call back the vets and ask for an emergency appointment, they usually have allotted time kept free for emergencies. Whatever it is, it looks like it could be badly infected and needs treated urgently. Your hedgie is probably in a lot of pain too.

I hope you can get her seen asap, please keep us posted ♡
