    i’ve been very sleep deprived and overworked this week. I was doing Harrington’s weekly cage deep clean, and had her on the ground next to me rolled up in her sac and some blankets. I was filling her litter pan when I went to sit down, and realized after 30 seconds that I had just sat down...

    Hello, My hedgie boy has had a red lump on his leg for about a month or so. I did take him to the vet to get him examined and they couldn't tell if the bump was cancerous. They said it could be cancer or it could be a wart. They gave me two options. I can have it surgically removed, which can...

    Hey folks! I'm super new here, and my hedgie only arrived here a day ago. It's his first night here and I wanted to give him a close look. I noticed this seemingly irritated spot on the forehead (pictures). Is this possibly just part of quilling (He's 12 weeks old now) as it looks like they...

    Before you get mad, this is my sister's hedgehog. I only started "taking care" of her because my sister only loved her for about a few days until she got bored. Right now, she's aggressively ramming into things, sniffing much more than usual around me and extremely erratic. She's also hissing a...

    Hi everyone! When I was washing my 5 year old hedgehog Nimbus this evening, I noticed a bump on the upper part of one of his front legs that I hadn’t seen before. I had last given him a full bath and nail trimming about three weeks ago (he doesn’t get very dirty super quickly as he’s gotten...

    hello friends! I apologize that this might be long, however, I feel that it'll give you a better picture of the situation. Two weeks ago, my family got my little brother a hedgehog named Pinecone from a breeder and we all fell in love with her. My brother started complaining that I was getting...

    Hey guys so Bahdi just turned 6 last month and he has always been a fairly healthy hedgehog. Recently though I’ve discovered a small hard bump on his chest about the size of a pea. I didn’t think much of it just knew I had to keep an eye on it. Even more recently though the same bump has now...

    Part of my morning routine is checking on Pebbles, making sure she isn't trying to hibernate or that there's no blood in her cage or anything else unusual. So as you can imagine, I was pretty worried when there was food left in her bowl. A quick check of her toys shows that she didn't eat any of...

    Hi all! So I noticed this bump on my Reggie’s lower jaw a couple weeks ago, not really thinking too much of it. But now it looks like it’s gotten bigger and I’m concerned. He has an appointment with the vet February 2nd. Is there anything I can do for him in the meantime?? I don’t know if it’s...

    Hello all! I'm a hedgehog parent to a 5 year old so far healthy male hedgehog. A week ago I traveled with my hedgie to stay with a friend over the holidays and as expected with hedgehogs he hasn't been as active due to settling down in the new environment. But now it's been a week and my baby...

    My 4 month old quillpig has had anemic poops since I've gotten her and, at first, I thought it was normal for hoglets especially with the stress of a new home and everything, but it still hasn't gotten any better. [Could it possibly be her diet? I'm feeding her Vitakraft Vitasmart Hedgehog...

    Hi, I am having a few concerns regarding my hedgehog of 4-5 years. He has never had these issues before, but he has recently lost a lot of weight (within 2-3 months) and is not gaining it back. I've been feeding him a mixture of Blue Buffalo Adult Dry Cat Food and Purina Beyond Simply Dry Cat...

    My hedgehog is 3 years old, she's never been extremely social and really enjoyed her own space. She's always been extremely large and has always had dryer skin than most hedgehogs. A few months ago I noticed she started loosing more quills than normal, I didn't think much about it because when...

    Hi everyone! My little guy just turned 1 this month. He is super active, very friendly and I have had no issues with him! Within the past 3 days I have noticed he is pooping skinny logs. At first I didn’t pay much attention because he will poop a big one then a smaller one a bit later. But it...

    Hi, I haven’t posted in a while since Igor had been doing pretty good. He developed a skin tag a few months back, and I thought nothing of it, since it didn’t seem to change or grow or bother him. Though, tonight I noticed something alarming and I’m struck with fear. On the supposed skin tag, a...
