Spiky_Floof<3 Okay, thank you! I also read that hedgehogs shed in the summer sometimes or after quilling so I'm not too worried about it. Thanks though!

Aj.t If she has no health issues or mites, it doesn’t sound like something to worry too much about; just like our hair falls out sometimes. Continue monitoring it however, and if she continues losing hair regularly, a vet visit wouldn’t hurt to rule out any skin conditions!

Spiky_Floof<3 She is around 2 months-ish old. ( I got her when she was 7.5 weeks old around may) 73 F at night may get a little hotter during the day because it is summer. Has no health concerns. And she is quilling, but goes on and off, right now not a ton are falling out.

Aj.t How old is she? What temperature is her enclosure kept at? Has she had any previous health concerns? Are quills falling out as well?

URGENT Hedgehog shedding

Hi all!

It is summer and my hedgehog has been shedding her hair on her tummy excessively. I am wondering if this is because of the heat or what? She has no visible bald spots, but when I pet her tummy, my hand comes up with hair all over it. Help please?
