Default My hedge bum area is very swollen and I found a tiny black bug on him?

My Hedgie is 2 months old and he seems to be scratching a lot. Today when I was playing with him I found a tiny wee black bug on him... I'm guessing it's mites but I could only see that one I found. He also looks to have a bit of a swollen bum kinda like some hamster get? If anyone could explain either of these problems that would be brilliant! I'm very worried

It's impossible to tell what's going on just from this description. The best way to find out is book an appointment with your vet.
