Hedgie in need of a wheelchair

I recently got a hedgehog from a woman who had it for her three year old son. Bad pet for a kd that young. Even though she had a lump on her back I took her in and gave the hedgie a good home. Ive had her about a month now and all of the sudden her back legs completly stopped working. My vet said its either cancer or shes just really old. She acts like her normal fiesty self, she just drags her back legs. I cant give up on her and was wondering if anyone had any idea on a wheelchair for hedgies. Thanks all!

Could you buy a wheelchair made for bunnies or really small dogs? I don't think it would be too hard to make one either.


Poor hedgie. It's good that you adopted her.

you can also google how to make animal wheelchairs and just downsize it to hedgie size.

I have been looking up different animal wheelchairs all day and already have some ideas. I was just hoping someone had already maybe made one.
