When I gave cat food to my hedgehog a while ago, i noticed that he suddenly became thinner. I remembered that when i gave him food few days ago, i always saw leftovers. I thought it was nothing, but tonight he is thinner so there is something going on for sure so I watched him eat and I realized that he couldn't chew it. I held him while eating and checked his teeth, I'm not sure if there is/are missing tooth/teeth but nothing is inflammed. What I did was i put warm water on his food to make it soft.

I checked his body and everything seems normal except that he is thinner, probably because he can't eat well.

What could be the reason why he can't chew kibbles?

How old is he? Are you able to see inside his mouth? In what I've read on here it could be a tumor or a broke tooth (try searching both). Someone with more experience I"m sure will come along & give you better suggestions. I would also recommend searching for threads about grinding food & syringe feeding, just in case
