Pimple looking thing on Hedgies Butt?
Hi everyone, I have had my hedgehog for about a year and 2 months now. since I've had her I've been using this as my source for any problems we encounter or whether she can eat certain types of food. The last time I asked a question there weren't any replies so I hope someone can answer this as any information is appreciated.

My hedgehog is a girl and today when I was playing with her, I noticed that there was a pimple looking spot right underneath her butt, I have never seen this on her, so I am kind of worried. She has been acting fine, nothing different in her attitude so I don't know if its anything problematic.

Does anyone know what it might be?

i am absolutely not an expert and am probably the opposite, but it could be a tumor. I know it would be very difficult, but can you show a picture?

Hi :)
I'm sorry no one replied before ><
I made a post the other day and no one replied lol, if it's an issue and no one knows the answer then unfortunately you might not get a reply.

It is always best to get anything unusual checked out by a vet. We can give our opinions but none of us will know for sure, there are no qualified vets on here from what I'm aware of. It could be a spot, an infected quill/hair molecule, an abscess or worst case a tumour. If it gets bigger you need to go to a vet immediately. I just went to the vets yesterday about my boys swollen lip, turns out it was just inflammation but he said if its something that gets bigger then its more of a serious issue like an abscess or tumour.

Please post a photo so someone more experienced can try and help you but I do recommend you take her to the vets to be on the safe side. Its always a good idea to get them checked over once a year so if you haven't been yet you could go for a health check and mention the pimple then. Keep us posted :)
