Default Re: Ear discharge

Is it ear wax? I've had a couple of hedgehogs over the years that would get wax build up in their ears. Nothing was wrong with them, it was just who they were. When one of them was under anesthesia for another problem, I had doc clean her ears. The other I had good luck with just taking a was cloth and gently wiping the wax away (obviously a very tolerant hedgehog). Both of these hedgehogs had large ears, I'm not certain if it had anything to do with it or if it was just a coincidence.

With that said, if you are concerned, why not schedule a vet visit? If it does turn out to be just wax at least you will know and your worries will be relieved.
