Re: pink skin?

If you do suspect the new aspen, you could take it out, wash their houses, and throw in fleece to see if that helps.

Same with the cat litter, try paper towels in the tray temporarily and see if that helps.

Re: pink skin?

I agree they look pretty normal. If it's slightly warmer there since it's summer, they might just be a little bit "flushed" from the heat. I wouldn't worry though.

To be perfectly honest, they seem to look fine to me, but I may be wrong :/

No, no swelling. Taking a picture of a hedgehogs face is easier said than done... geez, they're squirmy. I'll have to wait til my husband gets home to help me. We gotta cut their toenails too.

Re: pink skin?

Hmm, yeah you should post some photos.

So I guess it looks irritated :/ Have you noticed any swelling, etc?

No, I'm pretty sure they're not overheated. They're at about 73 degrees. I'll take a picture.

Re: pink skin?

Has it been hotter than normal there?

I read somewhere hear on the forum that when a hedgie gets overheated their skin will turn pinker.

pink skin?

My hedgehogs' faces are looking kinda pink. I don't remember them looking this pink before. What could be the cause? I'm thinking it might be the new aspen I gave them, or maybe the cat litter (it's non-clumping but I think it might still make them itchy...). Does anyone know what will make a hedgehog's skin pink? Or is it just normal and I didn't notice it before?
