    I’ve had my hedgehog sonic for over a year and for the past few months have seen a slight green tint in his poop, it has a pretty dark coloring and has a normal texture. He has normal behavior so I just assumed it was the color of his food. He eats the blue weight loss cat food, which I heard is...

    Hi everyone, My hedgie got a sort of a diarrhea on Friday and I consulted my vet on what to do, they said to try this medical cat food that is used to treat tummy issues and he has been eating it since. However, he seems to be hating the taste of it, but he eats it and behaves normally, he is...

    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...

    I've had my female hedgehog for a few years. I'd say shes at least 5 years old, and as far as I know she hasn't had any sorts of issues and she's healthy. She espically loves her wheel, but lately she hasn't been on it. She'll wake up, eat, and go back to bed. I figured it's a sign shes growing...

    Hello guys, I got a second little hedgie about two weeks ago. He was already about 4 months old when I got him so he wasnt completely a baby. He seemed healthy for the most part aside from the dry ears which i gave him flaxseed oil for. During the first week, his wheel was smeared with poop...

    I bought my hedgie from a breeder here in Washington State, and he's about 5 months old now. For the past couple of days I've noticed he's been having green poop (sorry if thats gross I'm just worried about him), and I've read that it can happen because of new food/treats/etc, and nothing has...

    I just adopted a 1 year old hedgehog from a woman that had some emergency personal health issues which forced her to sell her hedgehog. I brought her home Sunday and she seems to be very active at night. She sleeps all day and hardly moves until about 10pm - 5 or 6am. However today is Thursday...

    My new hedgehog is 4 months old and I only got him a few days ago. His name is Kai. He has been pooping a very dark green, slimy poop. Is this just because of stress of moving to his new home? He has also been scratching a lot. Is it possible he is quilling? I did the mites test but didn't...

    Hi so I just brought home Penny one week ago from a breeder. She is 8 weeks old. I am using same bedding, food, and water bottle they use. The first 2 days Penny was fine and very social.

    Dobby, my hedgehog, ever since I got him.. his poop was green but not jelly like. Yet I became concerned due to the forums here saying that green means his stressed/going through changes until yesterday his poop became brown... But a while ago it was green again... And he keeps on sleeping and...

    I recently became a proud new hedgehog owner! While I am very excited, I have a few concerns about my baby hedgehog. I am not sure if the things I am noticing are normal or not, but I wanted to get some answers in case I need to address anything right away. First off, we aren't particularly sure...

    Hi all! I just moved in my new hedgehog, Bear, about 4-5 days ago. He is 2 months old. This is my first time owning a hedgehog, and it's a little hard filtering through the massive amounts of information and opinions on here. The past couple of days, when I am trying to have a little...
  13. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hey there! Here's the low down: I've had my hedgehog for about 6 months and for the past month or so he's had green tinged poops. There have been some that looked very mucousy and green and sometimes they've even looked normal and brown. It's kind of on and off, but it's been consistently on...

    Hello, I bought my hedgehog about a week and a half ago. Shes bonded with me very quickly and is always very up and active so never leads me to believe anything is bothering her. It's 7:48am and I just woke up to check on her and I noticed a pile of poop that has a mixture of brown, green and...
  15. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello there, I have an 11 week little girl that's been adjusting wonderfully. However, I'm a little concerned about her bowel movements. If she's active while in my hands during our daily bonding time her poops always seem to be pretty green. However, the poop in her litter box and her wheel...

    Hey, My hedgehog Dougie is about two - so it is not just the usual answer 'new surroundings' or stress. When my other hedgehog (Delilah) had WHS a few months ago, we were told to give her dried meal worms to try and keep her weight up. So, as a treat we would give Dougie meal worms too...

    My hedgehog Lily was taken to the vets last week for soft stool, lethargy, and lack of appetite. She was diagnosed with a bacterial overgrowth in her digestive tract from the Natural balance green pea and duck/ wellness indoor cat mix I was giving her (it didn't agree with her even though they...
