    Right, right, so, it's been a while. I'll make the explanation short so I can get to the important stuff. Shortly after Peppers death mom wanted to get another hedgehog; I was slightly opposed to this, especially because of the expenses and if we could give the new hedgehog proper vet care. (I...

    Chestnut used to eat almost 2 tablespoons of food but for almost 2 weeks now has been eating only 1. Also, she has not been wheeling much at all, when she used to wheel for hours daily. Some days she will wheel a lot, but mostly not these days. I wake up to a clean or mostly clean wheel every...

    Hi everyone, so I have had my two hedgehogs for around 8 months now and I haven't really had any serious problems, even though I freaked out quite a few times. Anyway, this morning I went to look after my hedgehogs and noticed that the older one (about a year old now) was still kinda laying...

    My hedgehog normally drinks a decent amount - I've been away since Wednesday night - I left her with plenty of food and water and asked my grandad to check in on her and if she needed topping up to do so. I just came back and immediately went to her - she has barely eaten ANYTHING and she has...

Now he is underweight and have inward curves at sides * )( * When I was looking at the cage, I saw a reddish brown stain in his litter box which I think it's his urine. He drinks...

    Hi everyone, My 6 month old hedgehog is eating less at night and is starting to lose weight. He was eating about 10g a night, now he is eating about 3-5g. Was weighing about 230g, not about 205-210. He still has the energy and runs around all night. He used to always be excited to eat when...

    I got Henrietta last month. She was 15 weeks old. After the first week, I've had some problems with her throwing up. I took her to the vet and found out she was eating her cat litter. They gave me some medicine for her and slowly but surely she started to get better. Then she started to act...
  10. 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...
