I'm not even a fan of taking my hedgehog to the vet sometimes. People really struggle to understand that hedgehogs are not social creatures and get very stressed by light and attention. A lot of people only have experience with animals like dogs, cats, or rabbits, so they apply what they know of those animals to hedgehogs. You get a lot of people trying to pet them, hold them, etc. and it's super stressful for the hedgehog
