  1. Teeth & mouth issues
    Hey there, So my hedgehog was diagnosed with oral cancer on the lower jaw the other day. The vet says the tumor is most likely an aggressive type of cancer, and it has already started to affect his teeth and jaw. I’ve been looking through all the forms and have learned that oral cancer is one of...

    Hello there, This is my first post here, but I could really use the advice. I have a four year old hedgehog that I love very dearly named Clyde. About 6 months ago Clyde began to get fluid in his lungs along with the beginning of heart failure. Since then I’ve been giving him multiple different...
  3. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi everyone, I joined this site after many tries and fails to make an account but I finally got it! (sorry if this thread has any grammar mistakes or is just all over the place, I'm very stressed right now and I just want to get my hedgehog's story out there) I have a hedgehog named Piper who's...
  4. Bleeding, Female
    My little one, Artemis, is just over five years old; two weeks ago, I noticed two spots of blood in her dig box, quickly followed that night by a lot of blood in her urine. We went to the vet the next day, who recommended 14 days of antibiotics with a follow up appointment for ultrasound and X...

    My hedgehog is around 4 years old, and the doctor is almost sure he has lung cancer. Because of finances, the doctor's near-certainty that he has cancer, and the hedgie's perpetually cranky temperament, we have not done extensive or heavy testing for fear that it would make things even worse...

    Hello! I've posted here once before and it helped out a lot. Previously, Biscuit was having issues that required exploratory surgery. They discovered that her ovaries had calcified and needed to be removed. That was back in October/Novemberish, and she has since recovered. For the past month...

    Hi, I'm hoping to find someone with experience with an old hedgehog. My Nova is almost 4 1/2 years old and she recently starting having health problems. I'm not sure how much of her condition is due to her age and I don't know when I should let her go. She has always been healthy up until last...
  8. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hello, everyone. I used to have an account here when I first got my hedgehog nearly 4 years ago, and it really saddens me to have to come back now as our time together ends. Unfortunately, my hedgehog's quality of life diminished quickly starting a few weeks ago. She stopped running on her...
  9. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi everyone. I've been using hedgehog central to care for my year old baby Smithers since I got him. All of your threads have been my main education on the subject of my hedgie. Smithers has WHS, a tumor on his stomach, and a lung that does not work. My vet has told me that putting my baby down...

    So I've been having some trouble with my hedgehog Penelope. I visited a vet not too long ago because her back legs were being limp and dragging. Also, she wasn't eating or drinking. The vet, since he was experienced with hedgehogs, informed me he strongly thought it was uterine cancer that was...
  11. Teeth & mouth issues
    Warning: this may be a long post. So I just before Christmas I took on two afp hedgies from a friend of a friend, I'm a first time owner. I hadn't had them very long when I noticed a lump beginning to form on Harry (male, not sure of age as he was a rescue but at least 3 yo) mouth/snout. Took...

    I've been very depressed lately ever since my hedgehog, Damien, started having health problems :cry: Recently within the last month his health has declined. First I started noticing he was having a slight "whistle" to his breathing. I ignored it for a week or two because he was only doing it...

    Hello there! Fan of this forum, just joined to post this but I've lurked before! First, to clarify, by urgent I mean I may have to make this decision today, but probably tomorrow. I'm the owner of a 2 year ~10 month little guy (they grow up so fast!) named Mimsy, he's my first hedgehog. I've...
