    Hello! So, I've had a very interesting two weeks with my new hedgehog, Dr. Spike. If you're interested in all the details, I made this post on reddit one week ago about a hedgehog I got last Sunday unexpectedly giving birth, and this reddit post a few hours ago about the current situation...

    Hi guys im new at this forum, but i dont know what else to do right now, so i bought my african pygmy hedgehog almost 2 months ago from a horrible petshop, 2 days after i bought him i realized he had mites, so i took him to the vet they gave him a spray in the back and a week later he had no...

    Hi everyone, I'm a little worried. When I woke up this morning, I checked my thermostat and it read about 72-73 degrees, and my other thermometer (in the coldest corner of the cage) was reading at 71. I have my thermostat set to 78 degrees default and the bulb turns on once it gets below 77...

    As a backstory to this issue: My hedgehog Wynn is a 4 1/2 year old female who about 3 weeks ago underwent exploratory surgery that resulted in her uterus being removed (it contained a relatively large tumor). Before having her sutures removed I ended up noticing a dime sized, flesh coloured...

    My three month old girl Sylvia had a hibernation attempt last night. We're not sure what happened, we think it's a combination of her not liking to sleep in her igloo on her heating pad and (maybe) her water spilling all over her and getting her wet. In any case, we warmed her up immediately...

    I'm not sure if this is the right tag to this thread, but I'm worried about my 9 week old male hedgie Baymax. The past week for 3 straight mornings he had a cold stomach which I fixed using a warm rice bag and kept him with me for a bit but this over the past 2 days he activity level has...

    The other night after a very unexpected temperature dip, I had to bring Tema back from a near hibernation attempt. Luckily, her breeder who is very experienced, talked me through it. I've been monitoring her throughout the week to check if she's okay. She's had a check-up twice since and...

    My hedgie is almost 2 years old and she just experienced her 2nd hibernation attempt 2 weekends ago. About a year ago, my mother in law was taking care of her and didn't realize she got her fleece blanket in her water dish and wrapped it around herself. She was stiff and it took about 30...

    Hi everyone, so I have had my two hedgehogs for around 8 months now and I haven't really had any serious problems, even though I freaked out quite a few times. Anyway, this morning I went to look after my hedgehogs and noticed that the older one (about a year old now) was still kinda laying...

    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...
  11. Hibernation
    Last night I believe I might have had a hibernation attempt. My smaller hedgehog is typically pretty grumpy and has a hissy fit every time I do anything around the cage and when I go to feed him he always runs out to eat right away. I was out of the country for the last two weeks and only got...

    Hi guys, for the last few days my hedgehog Lily has been acting strange and I'm not sure if it's normal, or if I should take her to see a vet. She just finished a quilling a week or two ago and seems to be quilling again now - I got her on October 19 so she is about 11 weeks old. On Friday, I...

    So basially I was out of town for a few days, and my younger sister (who's 13) said she'd take care of my hedgie for me. I thought it'd be okay because she's usually pretty mature, and I was about that age when I got my first hedgie. Well when I got back and went to pick him up, I knew something...

    so recently my hedgehog, pip, attempted hibernation. i was scared, and i warmed her up right away. she seems fine now, just kind of jumpier than usual? we're currently picking up a thermostat because we are often out of the house, so the temperature probably drops when we're away. does anyone...

    BACKGROUND INFO: Tobi is almost 9 weeks now, it's his 2nd week home with us and has been adapting really well! Eats, drinks, poops, pees, wheels, plays, and sleeps a lot! He's an explorer so he's always running around when he's in his play pen (around 10pm). BEHAVIOR: He's been pretty much...

    When I went to get my hedgehog Pip tonight, I noticed the spot she was in felt a little colder than usual. She was all balled up and didn't come out after I picked her up, so I was worried that she was too cold and warmed her up by holding her on a heating pad for half an hour. After a while she...
