    We brought home our real Christmas tree today, and I realized that I had not considered the fact that the tree could be toxic for Prudence. The tree is currently in the room that she runs around in, and there is really no other place to put it. It's a blue spruce. My question is if it would be...

    Back when I first got Finn, he'd give me a poke and it would tingle for a while and then go away. Now, a year and a half later (I think?) when he pokes me I get a searing pain for about fifteen minutes and then small round itchy welts will start forming everywhere the quills made contact. I...

    I realize this might be a bit better suited in the mite section but I have a male hedgehog who is about 9-10 months old. He had very dry skin and was itching. I took him to the vet and had a scraping done so I know he had mites, the vet treated him with revolution every two weeks for three...

    So I've had my hedgehog Rosie for almost 9 months now. She is super social and cuddly and all-around awesome. Never had a problem. But... I got Priscilla 3 weeks ago. She wasn't abused, but she has been bounced around homes after being surrendered to a vet's office. It seems she was fed and...

    today Yuki has been scratching way more frequently and aggressively than usual and tonight i found 3 irritated, pink/red spots on his back and a couple of quills in his cage that weren't bloody at all, but i'm assuming he scratched them out. also, there is a bit of blood on both of his rear toes...

    After having had my girl for almost a two months, I appear to have developed a skin allergy. Every time I handle her my hands swell up in any places her quills have touched me. It's not just my hands either, if she brushes up against my leg or feet or anything like that, it happens as well. It's...

    I fed Minnie Iams kitten food when she was little, but after mentioning it on here I was told it was not the best option and gradually switched to Natural Balance (low calorie formula). During the month she was eating it, she had a few awful allergic reactions--two of which warranted emergency...
