  1. Wheels
    I switched my hedgehog from the silent spinner to the Carolina Storm Bucket Wheel and it has been about a month. Hezzie really loves his new wheel and runs excessively every night. Although I have it tilted + litter pan, I am still finding the wheel very, very, very dirty. I think this is...
  2. Housing & Accessories
    Hello! I've had my baby BB-8 for about a year and a half. When I lived with my parents, cleaning was easy (if not a little bit of a production) because I could take and hose off everything in the yard before taking it to the washing machine. But, we've recently made the transition to being...
  3. General Questions
    It appears (as many on here said) that I am allergic to my new baby. It's only been a few days so I'm hoping it could still just be a cold but I do have a history of animal allergies. I'm going to try to make it work with OTC meds and frequent cage cleanings, but has anyone tried a HEPA Filter...
  4. Travel
    I am going out of town for 3 nights and have a friend coming once a day to tend to and check on my hedgehog, Abacus. Abacus is downright nasty! I prefer to use Glad Press n' Seal on her wheel and I change that out daily as well as spot clean and change her pee pad. I feel bad asking my pet...
  5. Grooming
    Hello! I'm new here, and I'm several months away from even starting to think about owning a hedgie, but I've been doing lots of research in the meantime to prepare. I came across these "pet wipes", and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they would work for cleaning poopy feet and such...
  6. General Questions
    I have been just wiping down my hedgehog's cage with hot water and it has been fine. However, now my hedgehog is sick and I need a cleaner that will eliminate all germs so that he gets better. I am not sure what kinds of cleaners I could use to clean and wipe down the corrugated plastic in his...
  7. Cages
    Hi, everyone! Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on some hedgie-safe cleaners I can use to sanitze my Ty's enclosure. I've just been using hot water on the cage itself, laundry detergent for the fleece liners (I just throw them in the wash) and dawn dish detergent on his wheel...
  8. Mites
    My hedgie, Orpheus, somehow ended up with the dreaded mites! :( I have already been to the vet and gotten revolution. I was wondering how long I need to wait before giving him a full bath? Should I just rinse him with water and no soap/shampoo when I do bathe him because of his dry skin? I've...
  9. Cages
    What do I use to wash my hedgies things such as his water bottle and dish? Is it ok to use regular dish soap like dawn or? My Hedgie also lives in a 50 gallon tank so I want to know if it's ok to clean the glass with glass cleaner or will that cause my Hedgie issues?
  10. Grooming & Bath Products
    So just a quick review on Greenbones Deoderizing Snap Nap pet wipes with Lemongrass. I got these because on the front label it says Safe for: Hamsters, Guinea Pigs, Bunnies, Ferrets, Cats, & dogs. Which is a Pro that is safe for smaller animals when A lot of other products aren't. I use them...
  11. Cages
    How do I clean a hedgehog cage? It is going to be a large clear tub. What spray is appropriate for me to use? :confused:
  12. Health
    My dad went out and bought the Glade scented litter for our cat and forgot about my hedgehog. I'm cleaning his cage right now, so i was just wondering if anyone knew if this litter is okay for him??
