So I just got Momo yesterday and she seemed to be doing just fine,
Now today she pooped all over her bed and it was definitely diarrhea looking,

Could this just be post-move stress or adjusting to a new type of food?

Just wanna make sure she's alright,
So this seemed like a good place to start!

Thx!

Stress can cause hedgehogs to have green stools and they can be a little loose. How bad are they?

Did the previous owner give you any of the food the Momo was eating before? Its best to not change diet immediately but to do a slow change over to prevent problems.

I got her from Petland,
Saved her before the kids came and tapped on the glass like psycho's!

The food they were feeding her was cheap and high in fat,
So I found some awesome low fat cat food that she just mows down when she's hungry!

She seems to be having alot less green and alot more firmness in her stool,
So I'm thinking she's getting used to it.

Also I heard that to litter train you leave some finished business in her litter box and they learn where it is thru scent.
Is this right? She's used it twice, but I think it was more of a fluke haha!

Thanks for the help!
