I'll refer you to this thread:


which explains it a little more a long with photos.
Thank you very much for the information. I won't use this anymore, and no doubt it contributed to her nails.

But I'm afraid that my problem might still remain. Just now, I realized that my hedgehog had not used the spinner today. I haven't let her because she ripped her second nail two nights ago, and I've been afraid of the scab opening again. I trimmed her nails yesterday. Perhaps her third nail had ripped slowly, and been aggravated all this time? Or some such...

Do you have any advice?
