I'm trying Vitamin E
 
Hiii!! So It's my first time to own a hedgehog and I was wondering if d- Alpha Tocopherol Acetate 400 iu safe for external use. I noticed that he has a mildly flaky skin, he itches occasionally, and he sheds about 5-9 spines a day. I'm very worried for my baby and Chip is very very special to me. Please help us thank you :)

I think we were all sleeping. Sorry! :lol:

Those are exactly what you want to use. That's the kind that comes from natural sources and isn't made in a lab. Just poke a hole in a capsule and squeeze a few drops on your hoggy. Try to get it on his skin, not his quills. You can also squeeze a few capsules into a small dish and apply it with a syringe. I hope it helps his dryness!

Also, how old is Chip? If he's still rather young, the quill loss could just be quilling and nothing to worry about.

Thank you so much!

Yea I think so cos I live in the Philippines hahaha!

Oh okie dokie! I was a little bit worried cos I read something about the synthetic one having acids or acetate and some of it having grape seed oil. I was having second thoughts on whether I should give him some or not. Thank you so much!
