Vet Visits & Diabetic Hedgehogs



I confess....

....I am super late posting this link up because I spent the entire evening at the vet with Reggie last night. I have never been so worried about something in my entire life. Poor little guy was lethargic and dragging his back legs. We rushed him to the vet and it turns out my little man is hypoglycemic. Now he's on a bunch of meds that he does not want to let me give him so that's a huge struggle. I'm just happy that we know what's wrong and can work on fixing it! Too bad he's still a grumpy gus.

...I never thought a small animal could mean so much to me. I cried when I saw him hurt and in pain. It broke my heart into a thousand pieces.

...I don't care that he's not a typical pet, he's still part of my little family and I love him as much as the next person would love their dog.

  1. Poor Reggie, hope he is feeling better soon! I love small animals, I always had a hamster as a kid and I'd love to have another one except that I know how attached I will get and they don't live that long...and it seems like a vicious cycle of getting attached to things and then burying it in the back yard. :(

  11. I consider my dogs people. Everyone that matters to me understands that I have 2 priorities in my life: food and dogs, not always in that order.

  12. Poor little guy!! Hope everything is ok. It's so hard with pet's because you can't explain to them why you are forcing them to do something they don't want to do :(
