    Around a week ago one of my baby hoglets (5 weeks old) was accidentally pushed by mom off a ledge. Now, we noticed that he isn't using his back legs! Is there any way to treat this? We were planning to sell him soon but he is possibly disabled now and I don't know what to do. Is there any way I...

    My 2 year old hedgehog gave birth to a 6 hoglet litter, sadly only two survived. Both of the baby hoglets are very healthy and get the same nutrition. Although, one of the two's back legs won't work properly! He crawls instead of walking, by using his legs as side support instead of main...

    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...

    I have a hedgehog who just turned 3 this month, and a few days ago he was doing just fine. Walking around, eating and drinking. I gave him a bath and cleaned his cage as normal and he was fine however I noticed that he was not moving as normal like usually does. His walking was slow and sluggish...

    Hello. My 2 year old hedgehog gave birth to a 6 hoglet litter on October 11th. One was stillborn and sadly, two died due to lack of nutrition. Apon the litter, a little girl was abandoned by her mother and is most likely disabled (determined by eye, not confirmed by vet). I've been bottlefeeding...

    I was holding remi when i noticed two little bumps above her tiny little tail two little bumps. One looked actually like the penis of a male hedgehog but I am almost 100% she is female, it seems to close to the tail and I would've noticed it before. I will post a picture later today when I can I...

    My 7mo hedgie was sleeping in the wrong bin, not wrong wrong but not the one her hides are in. I’ve been struggling with heating and I came and woke her up and she was cold and she wasn’t huffing at me or anything like normal I’m freaking out trying to slowly warm her up so she doesn’t go into...

    My hedgehog is almost 7 months old and I didn’t think she was underweight but she was on the edge of the average weight. I weigh her every week and this week she was 291, 24 grams less than last week! Last week she weighed in at 315 and the week before 300 so I thought she was doing ok. She...

    I’m really worried about my 3 year old male hedgehog. About a week ago I noticed that he had stopped eating and after two days of him not eating, he stopped running around and acted lethargic too. I took him out of his cage and he was super cold so I warmed him up with my hands and turned on his...

  11. Diet and Nutrition
    Hello! I’ve got about a younger hedgehog , I’m not sure her age but I think it’s around 4-5 months. There is so much information, controversies, forums, etc. about what you should feed your hog. I’ve got her on dry cat food and that’s all. I’m really trying to upgrade her diet though as I’m...

    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...

    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 everyone. For the past few weeks my hedgehog, Colby, had been struggling with what we thought was a URI. The vet said there’s a chance it could be heart failure but ruled it out for the time being until he was done with his dose of Baytril to try to clear the congestion up in his lungs. He’s...

    My female had babies. I’ve been hearing baby sqeaks all day and I thought it was her sleeping and squeaking in dreams. I got her a month ago and she hasn’t been with any hogs I have at ALL to make sure she’s relaxed, one of the hogs where I got her must have got her pregnant. And this morning I...
  18. Respiratory Infections
    Hi! Recently I have noticed my hedgehog, Colby, making some noises in his sleep. Every time I went to check on him while he was making these noises, he seemed normal and could breathe just fine. I thought maybe he just began snoring in his old age (he turned 3 in October), but recently he has...

    Hey everyone thanks for reading. I’ve noticed my hedge has a weird brown scab looking thing under his chin. There used to be one and I assumed maybe it was some left over food lol. But now there is a second scab under his chin! Does anyone know what this is? Thanks for any advice I appreciate...
