If the antibiotics are not working, I'd ask doc to do a culture & sensitivity. A C&S will tell your vet what type of bacteria he is dealing with (if any) and what antibiotics will definitely kill it. It could be that the hedgehog has a strain of bacteria that is just resistant to both antibiotics he has tried. It could save you a lot of time and money in the long run from trying various medications only to have them not work either.
