Shes losing so many quills... The picture of the jar is how many shes lost in 4-5 days. The photo of the bench is how many she lost during bath time. 8 weeks old, just come off antibiotics for bacterial infection. Attachment 86490

I honestly don't know much about bacterial infections with hedgies, but that is a LOT of quills. I would follow up with a vet maybe just put in a phone call so you don't have to pay to go and see if they'd give you some free advice because that looks concerning to me, but it could just be a side effect of the medication? A medical professional's advice is best when it comes to your baby on this in my opinion.
