dehydration

  1. General Questions
    Hey. My hedgehog doesn't seem to be drinking, or at least not as much as he was a few days ago. I cleaned his cage today and cleaned out his food and water bowls just so everything was fresh, and also his poop was green ish (which i read is a sign of dehydration). I just need someone to tell me...

    Hey everyone! So my hedgehog, Hog (original, I know), is 5 1/2 years old. I noticed about two weeks ago that she was kicking her shavings EVERYWHERE, especially into her water dish multiple times a day, but just figured that she was being a brat.

  6. Diet and Nutrition
    I just got a baby hedgehog(my first so I'm paranoid) and he seems to be acting normal, but when he runs on his wheel at night and pees it smells so bad I sometimes have to go sleep on the couch! It makes me nauseous. He doesn't seem to be drinking much and I though he could be dehydrated. I keep...

    So, we went on a very long voyage, which lasted 15 hours. On the ship, my hedgehog was acting pretty normal. He was sleeping, moving around from time to time, eating, drinking and all. Since we reached home 2 days ago, though, he's stopped eating and drinking altogether. He's still as active as...
