Default Mites or Quilling?

i am concerned that my brutus might have mites. i got him about a month ago. brutus is 5 and a half months old. he eats and drinks regularly and his poop is fine. but he stopped running kn his wheel recently. he does have really dry skin and he is losing about 5-8 quills a day. the quills have the little bulbs of skin on the end. he is scratching and isnt acting normal. i heard these are cases of mites. but i also heard that it can be adult quilling when they grow in new quills. i do see little quills coming in but im also convinced that this can be mites and his condition might get worse. any help please??

My little guy had mites & quilling at the same time.

Treating mites is easy. Go to the vet and get them to prescribe Revolution. They'll tell you the dosage (usually 0.01mL per 100 g of hedgehog rounded up or down) and a dosing frequency (usually 2 to 4 weeks apart) to apply the medication directly to his skin.
