I have a albino hedgie named Jawn and recently he was walking funny on his left hind leg. My dad described the motion as "knuckling". Anyways I had read so many horror stories online about WHS we rushed him to a special small pets vet and she diagnosed him with WHS. I was devastated, Jawn is my baby. But here's the thing. Ever since, he has been walking normally even racing around the floor. He also goes pretty hard on his wheel, he loves that thing. Now here's what I'm thinking: either Jawn injured himself on his wheel, hence the limp, and was misdiagnosed by the vet. OR: he cured his own WHS with willpower. I've seen sad videos online of sick hedgehogs, and Jawn is incredibly mobile and has none of the other symptoms. Jawn is a pretty unique hedgie and if anyone could do it, it would be him!!

Vets mis-diagnose WHS all the time. WHS is a genetic disease which means it's impossible to cure it. If he is better now then he never had WHS, it's medically and scientifically impossible.

WHS is NOT curable.
