So from what I have rewad the infection will not go away on its own and you need antibiotics for the infection. If you go to pet smart or something like that you can buy antibiotics for fish and use it with your hog. I got Doxysclin there and used it for pinkys ear infection and it has worked great! sprinkle it in his food for 5 days in a row. also use eye drops like saline one.
You need antibiotics, my other hedgie had this and it was an infection. Vet told me that if I hadn’t taken her sooner it could’ve been lethal.
How is spike doing?
Spike looks to be doing better but have you gotten antibiotics?
