    Disclaimer; I am a very paranoid new hedgehog owner. I have hopefully a quick question. Gremlin has recently really cut down on what he’s eating. He used to scarf down a table spoon and now seemingly eats maybe five of the individual pieces of cat food. I have not changed his food or water...

  6. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello!! So, I noticed on Saturday that my little Sirius was WAY more grumpy than normal. And instead of acting like his normal spastic self (i.e. running around and exploring everything his little legs can reach), he curled up under my leg and just sat there. Not to mention, it took 15 minutes...
  7. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Snuggles has been having a few problems lately. I'm not sure if they are all related to one another, or not. I could really use some advice and idea's as to what I could do to help him and it make him better. 1. Dragging/rubbing his belly/butt across his liner- he does this whenever, there is...
  8. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello! I have had my hedgie for just a little over 2 years now. He is a healthy, happy, friendly hog. I have not had any issue with him until now. All of a sudden he stopped pooping. I did not change his food. I have been feeding him blue buffalo chicken and rice. I have tried to feed him grain...

    Our girl Frozone is about 2 years old now, but we've only had her since March. She had her first litter with us in late June, two hoglets, both survived and are very well. Her weight dropped after the litter and never quite went back to the pre-litter level, but she always stayed above 250g so...

    Hi! I would like some advice for my hedgehog, Venera. I have had her for three months, and she is only five months old. Four days ago when I woke up, I got her out of her cage to snuggle. It had been cold that night and I forgot to turn the heat lamp on. It waas 69 degrees in her cage, and she...

    Hello, I'm new here, and a pretty new hedgehog owner. I've had my lil b for about 6/8 months, and he seems ok- pretty shy towards me and others but happy to cuddle and run around outside once you wake him up a little, and is getting less shy all the time My question is whether it's normal that...
  12. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    I'm brand new to Hedges--and oh, my, are they just adorable! I agreed to watch a little hedgie boy while his college-student-parents left the dorm for winter break. I've had Waldo for 2.5 days. At first he was noticably freaked out--to be expected after traveling in a car, then being left in...

    My hedgehog Lily was taken to the vets last week for soft stool, lethargy, and lack of appetite. She was diagnosed with a bacterial overgrowth in her digestive tract from the Natural balance green pea and duck/ wellness indoor cat mix I was giving her (it didn't agree with her even though they...
  14. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    I noticed a couple days ago that my hedgehog, Harley, wasnt pooping very much so i think he is constipated. I dont think its a blockage because there are still very small poops here and there. Just not anything close to what it was like the first 3 weeks I had him. I tried feeding him a tiny...
  15. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello, About 2 days ago, I noticed that my male hedgehog (1 year and 10 months old) has been pooping a lot less than usual. He drinks from a water bowl (the water is changed about 3 times in a 24 hours period) and his food has not changed since I got him (Royal Canin Kitten 36). He seems to be...
