    I have two hedgehogs. Chara whos nails have to be cut twice a month and Frisk. Frisk's nails won't grow. They just won't. I don't remember the last time I cut them, and they are exactly the same length as I cut them the first time. Is this a problem or a blessing? Anyone else with this experience?
  2. Feet and legs
    Hey everyone, I just took my albino hedgehog to the vet (she is now over 3) for a general checkup. Well amelia would not let to the veterinarian to look at her so the veterinarian had to use gas anesthesia (which was the last resort). Anyway, amelia ended up having a weird reaction to it...

    My hedgie completely chewed off one of his toenails today. He was covered in a worrying amount of blood when I found him but I managed to wash almost all of it off. I've been putting pressure on the wound and will use flour if it doesn't stop soon but I'm not sure what else to do? He's chewed on...

  6. Cages
    Okay, so my hedgehog, Poppy, has escaped a couple times from her tub cage. The first time she climbed on top of her igloo and out really easily. The second time she used the (protected) ends of the screws for the water bottle to climb out. I'm wondering if getting a C & C sort of cage would be...

    Hey all :) I have a little male hoglet, 7 weeks old, who seems to be having issues with his hind quarters. He can run around, and is eating and pooing like normal, but he tends to stick his feet out when he walks (looks kind of like splay legs in birds, or flipper legs...). He also has...

Now i know this is normal but i was wondering if there is something i could do to get her to poop somewhere else so she doesnt keep stepping...

    So last night i was cleaning Rose's feet cuz she got poop on em and while holding her to brush the poop off her feet she bit my thumb and then she clenched pretty hard. Is this just because she didnt like getting the bath?
  10. Feet and legs
    Hi everyone! I've posted before with great success so I have another medical question. Squillex is normally a fun, active hedgie. Over the past couple of days there have been a few problems. He had been itching/ biting his belly/chin and was running around like a loon because I'm assuming he...

    Hi everybody. Please help me. What temperature and height should the water be when I give my 8 and a half week old African Pygmy his first bath. It is his feet that need washing. Thanks and please reply.

    Hey! This is my first post on hhs! I'm new to all things hedgehogs too! I have a 9 week old female hedgie named Millie and just yesterday when I went to pick her up I noticed her feet and hands (or paws? haha:grin:) looked really weird. I know hedgehogs get dry skin but didn't know if it was...

    My two year old hedgehog has a dark purple foot, he's walking on it fine but sometimes he hides it under his belly, he's been acting weird too, but he's eating, drinking, and pooping normally. He's also losing quills like crazy. He's losing about 10 a day and when I cleaned out his cage I found...
  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Lately I've been taking Tinkerball outside to encourage her to get some exercise, and to let her walk on different surfaces (pavement, cement, rocks, grass, etc) as a boredom buster and to try to naturally wear down her nails... Anyway, she has developed a peculiar habit of running over to me...

    My hedgie is a 4 month old female named Quillo. I recently had a huge scare with her when I came home from work to find that she had a clump of hair wrapped very tightly around her leg. We took her to the vet where she underwent anesthesia and had the hair removed. Her poor foot was slightly...

    HI so I got a hedgie and she seems to have blood on her wheel I thought it was due to her poop as it seems mostly on that she is using a flying saucer wheel to run and I now mostly see it on her feet so I let her stand in some warm water I have looked at her feet and they seem to look a little...

    I've had Harry for a little over a year now, and I have always had trouble getting him to let me touch his feet. A couple days ago I cut his nail too short and he started to bleed and I had to take him to the vet so they could stop it. I'm assuming this didn't help the situation with the feet...

    I've had hedgies for some time and NEVER come across a problem like this. Jake, my male that I bred and raised, is suddenly having issues with his feet. They look like they've been scraped/are raw. They're obviously painful - I'm not sure why he's running around like a loon but I can tell he's...
  19. Feet and legs
    My little Pippa has two toes (one on the front, one on the back) that curve slightly upward so the nail is off the ground. It appears to me that they were broken at some point, not treated, and then healed on their own in an awkward way. Is this something I need to have checked out by a vet...
