Default Re: First foot bath

My hog used to spaz out in water too, but she got used to it after a month or so and figured out that holding still would make it go faster. I also used to give her treats after drying her off to get her to associate bath time with treat time. Just keep trying and hopefully your hedgie will grow accustomed, although some hogs never do and you just have to deal with a squirmy water hater.

Mine also tends to drink bath water every time she has a bath. I have no idea why, but it hasn't caused any problems so it seems fine.

Also, my hog goes straight for the food bowl after a bath as well, its normal. :3
