Default quilling

So I have had my little girl penny for a month now and she is about 3 months old ... she has been losing a lot of quils lately and I don't know if that is form quilling or somthin else ... she did have mites and I got her treated and wi be doing another dose of it soon I don't see them on her like I did the first time and she is not acting like she did had the mites... I just am not sure if I should take her back to the vets and get her checked again or if it is just quilling. Thoughts ?

Sounds like she could just be quilling. Is she itchy? How many quills does she lose a night?
What did the vet treat the mites with? Ivermectin shouldn't be given to hedgehogs, there have been reports of overdoses causing death. Use Revolution instead.

Well it does sound like she is just quilling and maybe has a bit of dry skin. You can put some flaxseed oil in her food and on her back a few times a week to help. It's unfortunately that your vet dismissed your concerns about the Ivermectin, but make sure she doesn't get it again. It's good that you switched to Revolution, it's much safer

When Erin was going through her second quilling she dropped a couple the first few days and then she dropped almost 60 in one night!! I was surprised she wasn't bald! But after that she was done. Some quillings take longer than others.

It's hard to 'diagnose' over the internet, but if you have any serious concerns, definitely take her to the vet.
