Default Re: Guillermo Cut His Face :(

Are there any sharp edges in the cage? What toys does he have? Do you have a picture of his cage set-up?

I believe you can use a bit of Neosporin on hedgies if they get cuts, but it has to be the regular kind only, NOT the extra strength kind, because the extra strength kind can be poisonous to them.

I would recommend using a warm damp compress (not hot) on the cut if he'll let you to get rid of the blood and draw out infection, then using the regular Neosporin applied with a Q-tip, but I'm sure someone more experienced will be around soon with suggestions.

I hope the little guy gets better! He's a cutie!
