Hello! I know that tea tree is toxic to hedgehogs...I was helping my daughter with her hedgie tonight. I had applied an ointment that contains tea tree oil to my feet using my hands maybe 30 to 45 mins before...anyway...I touched the hedgehog but he did not lick me. I totally forgot I had used the product. I mostly let him run around but had to pick him up briefly to guide him. Any suggestions? Will he be OK? He is acting completely fine...drinking and running around cage. Thank you

All you can do is watch for any signs of illness or distress. If you notice anything unusual then I would be heading to the vet. Personally I didn't bring anything with tea tree oil in it into my house as long as I had hedgehogs just to be on the safe side.
