well i gave momo some mealies lastnight with her meds and she was trying to eat them but they kept falling back out of her mouth and she seemed to give up and not eat them. i didnt count her food as ahe has been eating ok but today it looked as though she hadnt eaten at all.
i think im going to have to take her to be put down tomorrow as i cant have her suffering. i will count her food tonight to be sure but its not looking good. my question is is there any way to feed her with syringe? if so what do i feed her?

Hi pammie
There is a chicken soup you could make. it is just boiled chicken and a little water, put all of this (not the bones but the skin is ok) into a blender. it should be quite liquid and use a syringe to put into your little on'e mouth very slowly.
They also like honey (but it's bad for them) but you could put a tiny amount into water to make sure she has a drink.
If I've got this wrong I'm sure everyone else will say

I'm so sorry to hear that pammie :cry:

You could try making some scrambled eggs in a non-stick pan without using any oil.
Chop up the egg and give it to her a little bit at a time.

i tried everything last night. i put her usualy food in a blender with chicken and mealies so it was just mush. i had tried scrambled egg the night before. i tried mealies and even honey but nothing she didnt eat at all so today i had to take the decision to get her put to sleep. the poor vet seemed as upset as me as she was turning into a bit of a celebraty there (they even have a pic of her in reception). so we have given her a little funeral in the garden under all the snow. i miss her so much already but i know it was for the best. RIP my beautiful baby x

I'm sorry to hear this. I dread the day I would have to determine when to say "when." Hugs to you.

Sorry to hear about Momo's passing. I know having your baby put to sleep is tough. You did the right thing and allowed her to go onto a place where she'll not know any pain or suffering. Sending thoughts your way.

You showed your baby the ultimate act of love by sending her on to a life where she is again healthy and playing with her new hedgie friends.
