    Help! (Note: this was posted after returning home from the vet. He has been seen by an emergency vet and has a follow up scheduled with his primary!) Has anyone experienced a 5 month old have a seizure?! My boy, Russell, had what we believe to be a seizure around 1045 last night. He was walking...

    My girl, Poppy, just turned 2. She has been battling diarrhea for 2 months. It contains thick, sticky mucus and has an unhealthy smell to it. Usually it's a green color but at times it's been orange and even white. Typically it's just a blob of a mess and occasionally it has a semi shape but...

    Hello all! My vet and I have been battling diarrhea in my hedgehog since November 2017. He started getting diarrhea and colorful poo out of the blue (no changes in diet, environment, bedding, water, or light). In response, we changed his diet in December from tender centers cat food to Iams...

    Hi there, friends! I've looked around on here and can't seem to find a solution to my problem. I've had Luna for just over three months, and she's around 4-ish years old. She is still eating the same food at a normal amount and drinking her same amount of water. I change her bedding every week...

    Hello everyone, I recently got my new hoglet Brie this past Tuesday from a reputable local pet store. She was brought in from a breeder in Georgia and the store has had a great reputation for consistently healthy pets. This is my third hedgie, I've had a female Roxie (who I lost to cancer) and a...

    Hey everyone, Over the last couple of weeks we have been really struggling with our (almost) 2 year old hedgehog. It started a couple weeks ago, when we noticed that he had been pooping green and had diarrhea that smelled horrible and we also noticed that he had been eating less. We thought...
  8. Eyes
    The past couple of days I've noticed that the area around my hedgie's eyes gets dry and kind of crusty. He also just started having diarrhea. Also his skin is very dry and flakey looking. It's kind of freaking me out and I feel so bad for him, so if anyone has any advise, it would be very...

    Hi Fellow Hedgehoggers, I have just lost one of my heggies to what the vets "suspect" was a spider bite. After looking on the forums, I didn't find much info regarding spider bites so decided to post this thread which may be able to help another owner down the line. Spike was a young...

    Hi there, I've got a hedgie named Algernon. He's 4 and a half years old. We've been having a few problems with him lately. Last week, on Friday, I heard Algie vomiting in his cage. He was very weak and had gone from 11 ounces to 7 ounces. We went to the emergency vet and she gave him fluids...

    Bader is 10 weeks old and he recently ripped a nail off so I changed him from his wire cage to a plastic storage container as his new home shoe couldn't climb the wire sides. Instead of wood chips used as bedding I put down fleece instead so he has a faster healing time. I also took out his...

    So I couldn't sleep and smelled something terrible in Olive's cage. I looked and she had diarrhea all over her wheel!!! I cleaned the wheel and her cage immediately, then picked her up in a towel and got as much of it off her as I could, bath tomorrow. I was at an exotics store and the owner...

    Hi everyone, my hedgehog Pigwidgeon (Pig) is having pretty severe diarrhea. Everything I've seen online is about green poo, but his is a lighter brown color than normal and is very mucousy. It also smells horrible. From what I could see I didn't notice any blood. I've only seen it happen first...

    Hi, I have a 3 month old hedgehog that I just purchased two days ago on Tuesday. I have had hedgehogs before but I have never had a hedgehog that has diarrhea. I have been feeding her exactly the same food as where I got her from and she seems to be acting normal other than the fact that she has...

    Hello everyone, I am a new hedgehog owner. I have a few questions and concerns. I have had my hedgie for 3 weeks. The pet shop told me that she was about 4 months old. It appears she has settled in nicely and I take her out every evening to hang out. She is very friendly and seems relaxed when...

    I have seen several threads about hedgies not feeling well. Gastroenteritis is fairly common in a hedgie, in fact, my hedgie suffered from it as well. I am a registered vet tech and worked with two Veterinarians to get "P" back on the road to good health. Vomiting or diarrhea is never a good...

    Her poops started to change yesterday. I put a little bit of chicken in her bowl, but I'm not even sure if she ate it. I took it out. What can cute her diarrhea? If it even is diarrhea. I tried to give her water but she won't really drink! Maybe she's stressed?

    This is a long story but I think it needs to be told in order to find a solution. Okay so on tuesday 6/28 I bought Roscoe, a 1yr old hedgehog from some girl on craigslist. I always wanted one and I knew it would be a big challenge but I figured, as with all things on craigslist, he'd be better...
