Peeling Mouth
My 3 month old male hedgie, Monty, has peeling skin all over the oppening of his mouth. I checked everything in his cage and everything seems safe. I don't know what could be causing it or what to do. Someone please help!!!

Is the white stuff the peeling skin? If so then he needs to see a vet as soon as you can get him in. Is he eating ok? drinking?

He's been eating a little less the last few days, and been led active, but the prepping didn't show up until last night. I checked him this morning and he had eaten more than he has all week, run on his wheel much more than usual (as it was much dirtier) and his mouth looked completely fine. I have no idea what happened.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it kinda looks like anoint spit... :P Like, after a hedgehog annoints... If it is skin then I would take him to the vet like Nikki said.
