Ok, now i've read the thread asking if aloe vera is toxic and i also know that wild european hedgies are completely different to our little babies, but was just wondering what the thoughts on this were.
Here is the story of Spud: http://www.sttiggywinkles.org.uk/spud.html
It doesn't say in the story but i called Tiggywinkles to ask what they used & how he was getting on. Turned out he had mites (as well as other things) and that after a lot of love and treatment was now nearly back to normal. The thing they found that worked best was Aloe Vera for animals.
You can buy different aloe products for animals and apparently you can water some down in a bath.
What does everyone think?
