Spiky_Floof<3 I put my hedgehog on a plate that has cornstarch on it. They are on a flat surface so they will eventually uncurl and walk around

I really don’t understand that rule on Internet forums either. Why have a thousand topics on the same thing? What’s the reasoning behind it? (Serious question, not trying to be smart or anything.)

Marco So this happened to us last night. Thanks to this thread we treated the bleeding with corn starch and removed his wheel. The bleeding stopped we went to bed and he stayed in his house most of the night.

In the morning I found bloody foot prints all around the cage and a small blood soaked stain in his bed... so it started again.

I replaced his bedding and he seems to be his usual crabby self when I wake up. Other than trying to keep the wound clean with daily foot baths, I guess that’s all we can do. I want 24 hrs before I put his wheel back. All we need is him running for hours through his own bowl movements.

Cut my hedgie's nail too deep

I accidentally cut the hedgie's nail to deep and it start bleeding but after I gave a little pressure it stopped. But I think that the nail is kindda swell right now. Should I give him something?

Just.penny I was cutting Penny's nails just now and she moved and sure enough it cut her I immediately filled the sink with cold water (soap free) to flush it out I left her in the water for about 1 to 2 minutes then I got a container and stuck her foot in old flour penny immediately stopped bleeding after I flushed it with water but,I used the flour too just to be safe I have been watching it for about 30 minutes now and she stopped bleeding maybe next time stick your hedgehog in water first it helped for penny
