Default quill and skin issues

Hello, so my hedgehog maci is 3 years old and she never really stopped losing her quills ever, everytime i hold her she sheds quills and its always been that way, now they grow back and she looks normal all her quills look full and there but i thought they dont lose anymore after they are not a baby, she stills loses at least like 10 a day, but its nothing new, i feel like i should be concerned though because shes 3 and its still happening, also her skin is dry and ive tried coconut oil on her quills but i dont like it at all it doesnt absorb it just stay on the top of her skin and also i read its not even good to use, i just tried using olive oil in her bath water and this actually seems to work but i dont like how it makes her all greasy and oily, but it isnt about what i like and dont its about her comfort, also ive been using oatmeal in her bath but shes still dry

Ok, so then I greatly recommend it. You buy pure flaxseed oil. And pour a little bit over your hedgie’s food once a week.

It did wonders for my hedgehog, saw results within the first week!
