lilythehedgie Well, the last vet visit was today. The amount of bacteria on her skin has extremely decreased, and the vet said one more week of anti-biotics and then Lily should be all better! Thanks everyone for all your help!

Lily has already been to the vet and is being treated for mites and a skin infection. She is due back to the vet for a second treatment of Revolution next Saturday. Nothing really new besides another total cleaning of the cage today (I did a mini-clean this week when I washed everything with hot water and gave her a new liner and all that). She's getting Bene-Bac at about 9 this evening since she gets her night meds at 6 so I figured that is spread out enough. That's pretty much it for today!

abbys Eicg, just a reminder to read through the whole thread before posting. This hedgie was already taken to the vet to treat for mites (which also treats fleas) and given antibiotics.

lilythehedgie Last night we ran out of antibiotics. It was supposed to last until next Saturday, but evidently not. She missed her dose last night and her dose this morning, but the vet gave us a new bottle with a little extra just in case. I did ask the vet about the Bene-Bac and if it was okay to give her that with the antibiotics just in case, but it's fine. My vet was so impressed that I knew about the Bene-Bac and taking care of her and everything that she actually asked me where I was getting all my information from! I said an online communtiy full of breeders and hedgehog experts/owners. Lily's second does of Bene-Bac isn't going to be until tomorrow since the dose that nikki found and the package says give once every three days. But she is definitely on the road to recovery!

Lilysmommy Glad she likes it! Definitely makes it easier to get it in her. Hope it helps with keeping her stomach calm even through antibiotics. Glad she's taking those well for you too! Keep it up, Lily!

lilythehedgie So the first dose of Bene-Bac went well! Evidently it's delicious, because she licked it all off the end of the tube as soon as I got it near her face. I gave her the antibiotics before the Bene-Bac (about 2 hours before) so I'm hoping that was enough time for the antibiotics to work. Anyway, I'll update tomorrow!

lilythehedgie Sorry I missed an update! I just got really busy all of a sudden. The Bene-Bac should be here today. She's been taking her antibiotics well, and it looks like her quills are growing back in on the bald spot and her skin is starting to look better. The Bene-Bac is going to be the "fun" part of the night.
