Default Quilling When I Give Her Attention

Y'ello Oreo's ~
My Hedgehog Layla is quiling when I hold her. Shes not very social and never really has been from what the owner said. I've been messing with her and everything and today I picked her up and she shedded about 7 quils. Shes 2 years old so I think its stress but I dont know, Could someone help me on what to do here?

What do you mean when you say 'messing with her'?

How do you pick her up?

Are there quills in her cage/hedgie bag, etc?

Is her skin flaky? is she scratching?

Is there a chance she has mites?

As in picking her up and holding her, I pick her up with a small blanket sense she pricks you when you touch her, there on the blanket when I she starts walking around on it, no her skin is not flakey, and I havent noticed her scraching, also im not sure if she has mites...how would you beable to tell?

With mites, you only know for sure if a vet does a skin scarping...and even then, there are often false negatives...many vets will treat for mites as a preventative... with Revolution NOT Invermectin (this can be dangerous to hedgies).

Besides mites, it could be stress...diet...dry skin...

Your first step is to see a vet to rule out any parasites or bacterias...then you go from there...I know of what I speak.

How long have you had her? Because, sometimes the stress of a new place is enough to make them lose some quills.
