  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...

    I'm sorry, this is a long post, but I am in South Korea where (as you will read, if you have time) that I do not have access to decent health care options for my hedgie - any advice will be welcomed! On Friday, 4 May 2018, I came home late and noticed that my little hedgie, Professor Moriarty -...

    So basically I gave my hedgehog a bath for the first time in a while yesterday, and usually, she is very calm and manageable doesn't hiss, pop, and any of that but today was very different. When I put her in the bath she was very scared and tried to get out of the bath (it was only up to her...

    Hello! I've posted here once before and it helped out a lot. Previously, Biscuit was having issues that required exploratory surgery. They discovered that her ovaries had calcified and needed to be removed. That was back in October/Novemberish, and she has since recovered. For the past month...

    Hi everyone! I've been looking into getting a hedgie for about two years and this website has been a huge help! I'm going to be getting a hedgehog in a few months but I can't seem to find a good food for one. I was thinking about Blue Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe (...
  6. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I first need to say that I have two awesome children and two cool dogs, and generally think I'm moderately okay at keeping those I'm in charge of well cared for, healthy and happy. That said, our hedgehog got the best of me and I may have failed thus far in socializing her properly, but I am...
  7. Heating
    Hi everyone, I am a new hedgie owner, and like all new parents, I'm extra sensitive to him and if something could possibly be wrong. I am waiting for my AC that I ordered to be delivered within the next 4-5 days, but it feels like an eternity, and I'm worried my hedgie may be too hot! :( Our...

  9. General Questions
    I was bonding with my new baby Tema (she's about 3 months old) on my bed a little because she's quilling and a little grumpy, and she usually sits still or lies underneath my covers or underneath a pillow. The next thing I knew she just took a run and leaped from the edge of my bed, sliding off...

  11. Quills
    Hello! So, I'm new here to this wonderful community, and I was wondering if my little Jawnhog could be quilling? He is 6 weeks old and I am finding several quills on my person--when I hold him--and in his cage. When I held him a moment ago, I got at least 10 off of me. I am, however, worried...

  13. Hibernation
    I have my two hedgies, Kiwi and Avocado. Every time my boyfriend takes care of them, the youngest one, Avocado: 6 months old, gets a really cold belly and this last time, my boyfriend said she was wobbly when she walks. I know this is a hibernation attempt, and I know I need to not let them go...

    My little Princess Quillia is so shy. She only really opens up to me and not my fiance. The only time my fiance handles her is when hes helping me bathe her or clip her nails. A couple days ago we were bathing her and I read somewhere you can use baby shampoo for soap to make them less stinky...

    Batman decided to redecorate his cage the other night (moved his wheel, food and water bowl, and removed the cage liner) and the following morning I took him out to give him a bath. That's when I noticed he has a large scrape/ burn like bruise on his neck near his paw. It looks like the first...
