    Hi, today I was holding my 3 year old female hedgehog Leni, when I noticed she had an unusual bump on her leg after she had pooped. I think it might’ve appeared overnight because yesterday I was playing with her and I hadn’t seen anything out of the ordinary. I have no idea what it is or what it...

    Hello! My hedgehog, Atticus, is about 5 years old (he's an oldie!) and he hasn't had any health issues until now. He has a lump on the side of his body- appears internal (see attached photo). Was wondering if anyone had any idea what this could be? We took him to the vet and the vet said that he...

    I play with my Zed every day, and last saturday i picked him up and he had a big pink pimple-looking bump on his face. I was just at a vet for a bacteria he had and the vet said they could look at it but it would be best to watch it first to see if it goes away on its own. I looked today and...

    Quilliam seems to have a pink bump under his chin that I just noticed today. My first thought was that it could be a mole because it kind of does look like there is a long hair coming from it that doesn't match his other hair on his under side. But also it could be something worse? He's still a...

    Minnie is my first hedgehog, I got her a few months ago and she was born in April of this year. She has been acting completely normal, but I noticed a bump on her front right leg a little over a week ago, it is not squishy, but it doesn't feel rock solid. It is probably a little smaller than the...

    I noticed a small brown bump on the outside of the skin on my hedgehog Louie's hind foot. I didn't think it was anything until it doubled in size in a week. I inspect it and noticed it was a rough bump that was coming off. I decided to clean his cage and give him a bath and I noticed the bump...

    My hedgehog has a tiny lump under his pinky toenail. Our vet is out of the city for a while, so I haven't been able to check up with her. It looks almost like a pimple to me. I was debating if it was a bone since it feels pretty hard, but it doesn't seem to cause any discomfort since he still...

    Hello all! This is my first ever post on hedgehog central. My 2.5 month old hedgehog named Ellie has a decent size bump with what looks like a scab on top on her face. I have a feeling it might be from her pushing up the bottom of her old cage and hurting herself, but I'm concerned as I've...

    I noticed that my Luci had a small bump next no her right eye about 2 months ago, and decided to keep an eye on it. I just went to the vet with my little girl a few days ago and got a diagnosis of "probably cancer". I was sent home with some antibiotics (which she's been amazing about) just in...

    Hi all, I was wondering if any of you know if hedgehogs can have fat rolls on their backs? I took my 11 month old hedgehog to the vet and was told he is overweight. I have him on diet food now, but his back looks like it has a raised part on his back. I'm not sure what this is and was...
  13. Eyes
    So last week I found a bump under my hedgehog's eye. I immediately took him to the vet who examined him and said that they were almost certain it was a abscessed tooth. We were sent home with an antibiotic that he has been on for a week now. Wednesday night when I went to give him his medicine I...

    I was drying Murloc after his bath and I noticed this odd lump in the area between his fur and quills. I just saw the vet on Thursday and he said Mur looks great and healthy. I'm not sure what this is thing is, it's kinda of hard but I can't tell because Murloc kept moving, it doesn't seem to...
