    I recently returned from a week long camping trip where I had a pet sitter taking care of my hedgie (just food and water). When I returned, I checked on her (but didn’t take her out, she was sleeping) noticed everything seemed ok, and went to take her out a couple days later. The second I...
  2. Skin
    Prudence has always been prone to dry skin, but today I noticed something a little less normal. I had her dry, itchy skin investigated by a couple of vets. Two skin scrapes determined that mites were definitely not the cause, and a fungal/bacterial infection was also ruled out. They basically...

    Hello, all! My little baby Blu has recently developed two not-so-cute scabs/crusties on either side of his nose. They don't seem to be coming from his actual nostrils or his eyes, rather they are right in between them, but identical on each side. I am very worried about what might've caused...
