Default sick still

My hedgehog is still sick.

is there like a hedgehog health center that could take him in and make him better? He has ringworm. and i think hes just reinfecting himself everytime i get him close to better.

He has no symptoms, i just know hes still sick because my room mates boyfriend got it after holding him one time.

i have already bought his medicine, but its been three months. I just want to play with him

If he doesn't show any symptoms, then your friend's boyfriend might have gotten it somewhere else, like in a locker/changing room, or just from a desk, etc

There are lots of places to get ringworm

You should prob take him to a vet though, just in case

Shae is absolutely right, you should get him to the vet as soon as possible.

Have you got ringworm from him since treatment? If not, then it is possibly your friend got it somewhere else. I'd take him back to the vet to be checked.

the vet said it could take up to five months to cure him.
And It takes a month for the test to find out if he has it still.

ill take him back if you think hes better.
