A common problem that often goes unseen until the hedgehog suddenly becomes very ill is fatty liver. Often this is a problem that stems from a poor diet (poor quality kibble, too few nutrients, etc.) or from not eating for a longer period of time. This can happen after 48 hours of not eating. With a bad diet, it often only happens after months or sometimes even years, but it also causes the necessary problems. The fat metabolism then goes out of whack and the liver starts to store fat in the liver cells, causing fatty liver disease.
