at school we have a hedgie named helen i go to school for kids who are gonna be exotic vets. so helen had her eyes removed because her former owner thought that was good since she had a bad eye infection my teacher isn't sure how old helen is but I'm concerned she, is loosing her quills like she has bald spots and she has really bad dry skin i bought some vitamin E for her dry skin do you have any ideas on how i can get her quills to go grow back the skin isn't inflamed or looks like it is bothered could it just be because of her being old ?!? she isn't anywhere near 6-8 months like the normal quill shed. please help the teacher said she has ben like this. if she can get better i will take her home for her to get better

For the dry skin you can try using flax seed oil. Someone else with more experience will have to advise on the quills.

I am locking this topic because the same question has already been posted in the Health section. Please don't double post.
