I make the efforts to obtain her come drink water, yet with no luck and also while she was sitting on mine lap together I looked up surrounding vets that could be open up or have actually someone that knows around hedgehogs on staff she started to move roughly a small but was really weak.

I regulated to syringe feed she some heat water and after a few gentle tries she appeared to respond to it and then ns let her remainder for a little while.

She has since become even less responsive and also it seems prefer she's right breathing.

Anyone have any kind of suggestions due to the fact that I don't have any vet options surrounding that are open up until tomorrow morning?

Edit: neglect for sad reasons.

Unless it was likewise ridiculously warm, two days without water isn't going to have that result. Try warming she up on her stomach. Is over there a heat source and a digital thermometer for the cage? What's the present temperature in there?
