Re: very dry skin and quill loss. no mites.
Dry skin can be a pretty common problem for hedgehogs. One thing you can try to help is putting flaxseed oil on his food every 2-3 days, and a little in his rinse water after a bath. If you try that, make sure you buy the capsules, since the plain liquid can go bad faster. The capsules are easy to poke a hole in with a pin and squirt out the liquid. It can also help if you run a humidifier in the room he's in. Warm air is best, since it helps warm the room up for them too.
