They didnt, he has been with me since being identified as too small for hibernation (neighbours garden).
He is drinking plenty so there’s no appapparent need for subcut fluids (I work in a vets). Just can’t quite understand why he won’t eat more.

I dont really want to weigh him every day as want to keep handling to an.absolute minimum to keep stress levels down.
