Lilysmommy It should be okay for them to treat this - it's not a health issue that's specific to hedgehogs & would likely come up in other animals too. Hedgehogs are just more prone to skin-related infections because their quills create so many openings to the body when they grow in. Good luck with the vet!

charles Thank you I will be taking him to the vet today. I'm just worried as most vets here have no experience with hedgies

Lilysmommy Head to the vet. They look like possibly abscesses or something, but you'll need a vet to take a look at them & diagnose what they are in order to treat them.

SquirtleSquirt I think you should get that checked out by the vet.

Red pimple sores

Hi all,

My hedgehog, Beau, has just had a bath and I've noticed that he has red bumps on his bum they look almost like boils or pimples. Can anyone inform me what they are and what I should do?

He is just over a year and has recently gone through quilling. Which I've read up isn't too unusual for his age.

Any help will be greatly appreciated
