Re: Pink Eye
Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is one of the illnesses that is very easily transmitted between people and animals. Herpes and bordatella are as well. These illnesses can survive between the differences in body temperature.
Anytime you're sick you should always take precautions by washing your hands thoroughly with soap (unscented if your hedgie is picky about that) and warm water. And make sure nothing the hedgie touched has come in contact with the germs (ie if you wiped your eye with your shirt, change your shirt before getting the hedgie out).
Just be sure to wash your hands really well and keep him away from anything that might have the bacteria on it and he should be fine.
