can someone also tell me the difference between soft mushy poo and diarrhoea in hedgehogs – I’m starting to think it’s now diarrhoea. In any case, first thing in the morning, I will text the hedgehog centre – tell them I’m unable to give a poo sample (no firm poos) and tell her I’m worried she has diarrhoea.

I hope she takes her in this weekend and give her some meds, as I’m sure this is not normal – and convinced she has internal parasites.

I’ve now changed the puppy mat 3 times this evening, as she has left soft poo on it – and then she tramples on it, and that’s why it gets everywhere – thankfully, she only does the poo on one side of the hutch – so I can easily just slide one half of the puppy mat out and replace it without disturbing her.
