Default Re: Dry ears?

They should have a smooth appearance with a little fur on them. Fingers/tattered ears could be the result of overly dirty ears or even a symptom from mites or a fungal infection.

If they look dirty, try rubbing a little nipple cream (you can find it in the baby section) on her ears. Some have used bag balm, but I've found that bag balm has too much of a scent for some hedgehogs.
