I will post what the vet gave us when I get home.

In the past we have cleaned his hard "stuff" with unscented dish liquid. Should we amp this up with bleach or vinegar? Washing all his fleece things with free and clear laundry soap and vinegar.

Always good to remind about the hand washing.

He is LOVING the wet cat food ball that I am mixing the liquid medicine in... do not see much on wet cat food. is it ok to add to his dry kibble or just as a treat? Any brands that can be found in a store as opposed to online?

Vinegar and water will be a-okay. Bleach is rather harsh for hedgies.

Glad he loves his meds disguised in the wet food.

And, yes, wet food is great as a treat. Typically, the good dry kibble brands make good wet food choices. Things like Wellness, Katz-n-Flocken, Blue Buffalo, and Spot's Stew have been hits here. They seem to like the pureed version rather than the flaked type. Sometimes, I'll accidentally get a flaked version -- I'll just mash it up with a fork and they're happy little campers.
