I know I haven't been around for a while- things have been busy at the shelter.
I am writing for support. Our Hedgie has Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome/Disease. It is similar to MS in people and it is thought to be genetic, but no one really knows.
I have been nursing him for a couple of weeks now, helping him to walk and eat and drink. He can't work his body very well but his mind is all there. It is just heartbreaking. I know I should have him put down, but I just have a hard time setting it up after I look into those little eyes and he just seems to know. As long as I help he does 0k and does still have some mobility. I fixed his habitat so that he has support to move some on his own power. Sometimes he tries too hard and gets over on his side and can't get up by himself and just struggles so. It is just tearing me up.
Anybody else ever go through this????
