Default Queenies Quills

Hi everybody! Im new to this site and a new hedgehog owner as well! Ive had my baby for almost 2 months and she is 2! So my question is, I was playing with her tonight and I noticed around her tail she had a quill sticking out and it was all by itself. No other quills were by it and it was really red and sort of inflamed, I pulled it out because it looked painful and was sticking her right around her bottom and genitals. Was that bad? Does anybody know what it could possibly be?

It sounds like it may have been an ingrown quill, or one that got stuck & shouldn't have been there. Either way, probably a good thing you pulled it out! I would still keep an eye on the area, especially since it's so close to where she poops & pees, and make sure it doesn't get infected. If you notice it get more red, swollen, warm, or any pus, get her in to the vet for antibiotics.

Thank you so much! It looks much better and not as red, she does have something around that area that looks like a pimple. Ive scheduled an appointment with a vet just to get her looked at. Thank you again!
