Default Worms

Hi there!

I've noticed earlier today that my hedgie has worms. Her tummy has also been going a bit more frequently.

Does anyone know what type of medication to get for them, and has anyone's hedgies had worms?

I just want to make sure that this is normal and not something serious.

Thank you

That's not normal and your hedgie needs to go to the vet for deworming medicine. Do you know how she would have gotten them? It's not normal for hedgies to get worms if they're kept properly and fed the right food. What kind of enclosure is she in? What do you feed her? Does she ever go outside?
