  5. Respiratory Infections
    Hi I have an almost 4 year old hedgehog and he hasn’t been eating for about 4 days and not drinking much. One of his eyes is red with crusties and his nose is dry and crusty too. The corner of his mouth seemed to have bled and had a cut on it but I couldn’t tell. And he is wobbly. I cleaned all...
  6. Feet and legs
    Hi, today I was holding my 3 year old female hedgehog Leni, when I noticed she had an unusual bump on her leg after she had pooped. I think it might’ve appeared overnight because yesterday I was playing with her and I hadn’t seen anything out of the ordinary. I have no idea what it is or what it...

  10. Introductions
    Hello! I took in a neglected hedgehog about 2 weeks ago. I was initially under the impression that the previous owner just didn't have time to spend with him, however it seems that he didn't have time to learn about or even care for the hedgehog. I know the basics about hedgehog care (I work...

    Questions in bold below...I got my 8-week old hedgie, Poppa, a week and a half ago. He adjusted to his new cage almost straightaway and loves it in there! Clicks/hops/hisses like crazy when I go to pick him up or touch his quills, but I know this is normal with a new hedgie. In terms of...
  12. Feet and legs
    My hedgie completely chewed off one of his toenails today. He was covered in a worrying amount of blood when I found him but I managed to wash almost all of it off. I've been putting pressure on the wound and will use flour if it doesn't stop soon but I'm not sure what else to do? He's chewed on...

  14. Travel
    Hello fellow hedgie parents! I currently live in New York with my girl, Q. I am moving to the west coast and assumed that if I paid a fee, I could bring my hedgie on the plane with me (like a dog or a rabbit). Apparently this is not the case. I simply don't know what to do! Q has travelled...

  16. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    My hedgie surprised me with babies about a month ago and 2 of them have staph infections. Ive taken them to the vet already and they've finished their course of antibiotics however it seems as if it's only getting worse. One of the babies, Meiko, had only ONE scab on his leg(it was pretty bad...
  17. Quills
    Ive been giving my hedgehog baths in vegetable oil (she had mites and I was doing it to try and help soothe her before I could get her to the vet) and recently she's started losing a lot of quills. I know it's not because of the mites so I was wondering if maybe I didn't rinse her off well...
  18. Wheels
    So my precious Princess Quillia is now three months old. I bought her one of those flying saucer wheels at petco. She did just fine with it for about three weeks, I bought the largest size. About a week ago the wheel started making loud irritating squeaking, and I cannot fix it for the life...
