    Hey there, I adopted Beau last Friday 1/15/21. He's about 10-11 months old and he's a rescue from a family who wasn't taking care of him. Their story for what happened to Beau is that they didn't know you were supposed to trim their nails, so his back nail grew into his paw and then they cut it...

    Greetings Everyone! I am a hedgehog pet owner. Paolo is 6 or 7 months old. Since i share a big room with other girls in a boarding room/ house. And i only have small cage i decided to put Paolo in our room so he can run freely which works well for him. He normally comes out at night. I haven't...

    Hey everyone! Quick backstory: My little Hermione had a rather unpleasant experience with a bit of loose string lately, she wrapped it around her foot and cut off the blood circulation for a short while. Luckily I discovered the issue very quick and got rid of the string and brought her to the...

    Minnie is my first hedgehog, I got her a few months ago and she was born in April of this year. She has been acting completely normal, but I noticed a bump on her front right leg a little over a week ago, it is not squishy, but it doesn't feel rock solid. It is probably a little smaller than the...

    Hello- We are new hedgehog owners, having recently adopted a hog from an acquaintance that after 2.5 years felt they were not providing the best care. When he arrived and finally unrolled enough to walk around a little we discovered his back foot was in rough shape. Our vet was able to help...

    My hedgehog's got a swollen and red foot which I only noticed today when I was trimming his nails. His toes are twice their usual size, and I think 3 of his nails fell off that foot. All the other feet are fine, and he seems to be walking fine, but I'm really worried. I'm pretty sure it's...

    I noticed a small brown bump on the outside of the skin on my hedgehog Louie's hind foot. I didn't think it was anything until it doubled in size in a week. I inspect it and noticed it was a rough bump that was coming off. I decided to clean his cage and give him a bath and I noticed the bump...

    My hedgehog has a tiny lump under his pinky toenail. Our vet is out of the city for a while, so I haven't been able to check up with her. It looks almost like a pimple to me. I was debating if it was a bone since it feels pretty hard, but it doesn't seem to cause any discomfort since he still...

    I gave my hedgie a bath today and caught sight of a skin tag on his foot. How I missed it before (I just clipped his nails), I have no idea. He doesn't seem to be in pain by it, walks fine, and it isn't sensitive to the touch. Is this something I should be worried about? Planning on taking him...

    Help! My hedgehog escaped it's cage (I don't know how- but I bought a new cage - even before I found her). When I finally was able to find her she had a horrible wound. I can't say exactly where she's bleeding because her blood has spread, but I think it's her stomach, and possibly her head...

    Hi! First of all, I need to mention that vets in my country (Greece) have no idea about hedgehogs and won't be able to help, so please don't tell me to take her to the vet. :( I have asked several; some say they don't want to treat hedgehogs and some other that they have no experience but could...

    About 8 months ago, our hedgie Samus had her foot removed due to an incident with string cutting off circulation. She was doing fantastic without it and exploring as always. Recently in the past 2 weeks she has stopped walking/exploring/playing. We took her to the vet and were told that her...

    I've had my little Hank for about 6 months now. He's about a year old. He refuses to stay in his home and use his wheel, he hurts himself trying to get out! So we keep the bedroom very clean, so he can run all over the floor. Our vet told us to keep an eye on his feet just in case he gets...

    Hello everyone, I just gave Pippy a foot bath (her poopy boots were very present this morning!) and after I got done and wrapped her in a towel I sat down on my bed with her. She got a sudden burst of energy and started running like crazy on my bed and then I noticed scattered spots of blood on...

    Hi there! I've read the other cut foot threads, so I think I'm okay on first aid and care, but I'm wondering about reintroducing my hedgie's wheel safely. Gideon is just about three months old, and we've had him since late October. He has a CSW or similar design (we bought it from our breeder)...

    So, I went to get Kiwi out of his cage, I noticed his little, front right paw. It's just a little red circle. I've tried getting a picture, but he won't let me. It doesn't seem to be bothering him. He walks on it normally. I just gave him a bath, to help avoid infection. He will let me...

    Hey guys, first post. I've had Watson for almost 3 years now and he's been one of the best pets I could ever have. I noticed this weekend that one of his little fingers was really swollen. It doesn't seem to bug him too much, but he didn't eat near as much as he normally does. I attached the...

    A couple days ago I noticed that Buddy hadn't eaten as much as usual and I assumed it was stress and then today I realised that he couldn't reach the food because his foot was trapped in a thread coming from a piece of fabric i had placed in his cage. It's obvious he tried to reach his food...
