  1. Health
    I'm a first time pet owner so I'm worried out of my mind. Teemo, my hedgehog, she has a bit of blood in her pee. It's very slight. As soon as I see the red then it swirls into the pee. What could this be? Is it internal injury? I would hate myself if it's the case... I'm ready to bring my...
  2. General Questions
    Hello! I am a brand new hedgehog owner, my little one's name is Henry and he is 4 months old and he seems to be getting more and more aggressive with each day that passes. I've owned him for a full month now and in the beginning when I first brought him home he seemed like a sweet little boy...

    My boyfriend bought me our first hedgie, Winnie, about a month and a half ago. Since then she's become a lot more friendly - much less hissing and puffing up in a ball when we touch/hold her, although I still have to pick her up with a jumper initially as she refuses to let me scoop her up...
  8. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Bader is 10 weeks old and he recently ripped a nail off so I changed him from his wire cage to a plastic storage container as his new home shoe couldn't climb the wire sides. Instead of wood chips used as bedding I put down fleece instead so he has a faster healing time. I also took out his...
