Hi everyone. I've been using hedgehog central to care for my year old baby Smithers since I got him. All of your threads have been my main education on the subject of my hedgie. Smithers has WHS, a tumor on his stomach, and a lung that does not work. My vet has told me that putting my baby down is the most humane thing to do and I agree of course. I'm just not sure how to tell when. Right now he is getting worse. He's thin, I have to hand water him to make sure he's not dehydrated, and he poos on the spot (doesn't use his box or anything.) He's gotten to the point that he can hardly use his hind legs. He sleeps most of the day & night. He still gets excited for meal worms and still has some feistyness left in him. He's a fighter, I know this for a fact, but as an owner when do I decide that the fight is over? What are the signs that he's in pain or that the quality of his life isn't good? I will take any advice please. I'm 19 years old and I have never had to do anything like this in my life. Please help me help my baby. Thank you.
