Default MY HEDGEHOGS GONE COMPLETELY NUTS! HELP!

I took my hedgehog out about a half hour ago to try to cut his nails and spend some time with him, I got one nail cut, but then about a few minutes after I cut his nail HE STARTED GOING COMPLETELY INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was like BOLTING out of my lap and hands and was going to fall so I caught him! and help trying to BOLT out of my hands like at HIGH SPEED!

I was like uhh okay maybe ill just put you back, NOW HES bugging out still! in his cage! his little heart is beating so fast I CAN HEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to try to calm him down and he just huffs and puffs at me, but DOESNT quill up and DOESNT ball up either! just kind jolts!, all his quills are down so it looks like hes calm! BUT HES GOING NUTSS!?!?!

ANYONE HELP! It's freaking me the **** out!

you may have cut the quick when you were cutting his nails. check for any blood in his cage. if it's not bad you can dip a qtip in some flour and gently push against the nail to stop the bleeding

Sounds like you trimmed the nail too short and hurt him.

It's 11:40 pm when you posted. Maybe that's his active time? If I wake my hedgie up during the time at which she's naturally active, she can get pretty excited like that too. I know when I'd turn out the lights with Sweet Pea, she'd run all over the place all crazy-like, much more so than during the day when she'd be sleeping.

Perhaps a quill got bent over and is sticking him. I've had them go totally crazy and that was the cause.

was there anything scented on your hands? Back when I'd first got Sylvie, I gave her a bath with a little baby oil in the water to help her skin. After the bath she was flipping out, throwing her body all over the place and just being crazy. I realized 'perfum' was the last ingredient listed on the bottle. I immediately gave her another bath with only water to rinse off the oil & then she was fine.
