Unhappy Help self-mutilation

my baby Storm seems to be self-mutilating herself
and I don't seem to know why I know it's not her nails I just cut
them a couple days ago but then I notice today that she had another
mark under her neck again on the other side as well as a couple white
bumps is there a way for me to make her stop ?





Please Help!

You need to take her to the vet to find out what the underlying cause is and to get antibiotics to prevent the injuries from getting infected.

Ciao Storm...

sorry I found here this old message of yours.

this is exactly what happens to my Marty as well. if you search I just posted a thread about it yesterday.

Did you solve the issue eventually? I mean did it occur again after that first time?

for Marty the first time was last November 2016 and in that occasion we were totally taken aback and he managed to cause 2 following open wounds.

2nd time and 3rd time occurred in 2018 instead we were able to avoid the worst and have him reach the point of bleeding.

But I was wondering, did you collect any other precious info about the cause and how to relax your hedgie when these fits happen?

Thank you so much.
Lussy

Please check the date on a thread before posting, this one is a year old and the original poster hasn't been back on the forum for over a year now.
