Unhappy Lost spike???


My hedgedog is super nervous and have dry skin, So I do what can to put more humidity in the room, but each time I take my little Abby out of th cage he lost around 4 spikes (I'm not even sure that it is call like that in english ^^' sorry)

I'm really worried about him, do you have any idea? He is still too nervous to have a bath...

How old is he? Hedgehogs go through a quilling process from about six weeks of age until 6-12 months. Like children losing teeth, they lose quills and replace them during this period. If he’s still young my guess is that he’s quilling. If you can see him scratching frequently and many quills are fallen each day, you would want to consider a vet visit just to rule out mites.
Hope this helps 🙂
