    Aquilles somehow poked his front foot on something and left blood everywhere on wheel and around cage. I did not find anything sharp in cage. I cleaned his feet, it is a tiny pin prick. stopped bleeding. The last few days it seems to be bleeding when he runs and I am not sure how to stop that...

    So, a week ago, I noticed that my hedgehog had his right leg bone kind of sticking upwards whenever he lays down. My mom thought he was compensating for his other side because he has a large cyst (which is non-cancerous, according to my vet) on the left side of his body. I tried to help him by...

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the site and this is my first time posting. I have a hedgehog, Moshi, who somehow got a cut in her back. We're not sure how she got the cut but her quills are full of dried blood. My brother and I are trying to clean the blood out gently with a toothbrush and baby...
  4. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I’m not sure where I should be posting this but I just had Pepper out in the bath (empty bath) to roam around so that I can keep an eye on him. I was stood in the bath and Pepper started to sniff around my socks. He has a tendency to bite bare skin so at the moment I’m trying to keep that away...

    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...

    Minnie is my first hedgehog, I got her a few months ago and she was born in April of this year. She has been acting completely normal, but I noticed a bump on her front right leg a little over a week ago, it is not squishy, but it doesn't feel rock solid. It is probably a little smaller than the...
  7. Eyes
    Hello, this is my first post, I just got back from vacation that lasted a full month, I had to leave my hedgehog at home with my mother. She hadn't taken him out every single day like I do (Maybe every 2-4 days), but now that I am home, I noticed his eye is bigger, red around it, and the eye is...
  8. General Questions
    Hello- We are new hedgehog owners, having recently adopted a hog from an acquaintance that after 2.5 years felt they were not providing the best care. When he arrived and finally unrolled enough to walk around a little we discovered his back foot was in rough shape. Our vet was able to help...
  9. Eyes
    Ok so my hedgehog is a male and is approximately about a year and 8 months old. About 1 month ago, he started presenting corneal edima in his right eye. I took him to the vet immediately and was given a medicine to apply directly to his eye. His eye has turned completely blue and sunken in, and...
  10. Skin
    My 10 month male hedgehog has a red spot under his left front leg. If he had an armpit, it would be there. I was drying him off from a bath when the spot was first brought to my attention. I had tried to hold him on his back in my hand while holding his front leg out, but to my dismay he just...

    Does anyone have insurance on their hedgies? Does anyone use VPI (now Nationwide)?
  12. Feet and legs
    I've had my little Hank for about 6 months now. He's about a year old. He refuses to stay in his home and use his wheel, he hurts himself trying to get out! So we keep the bedroom very clean, so he can run all over the floor. Our vet told us to keep an eye on his feet just in case he gets...
  13. Feet and legs
    Hi everyone! I've posted before with great success so I have another medical question. Squillex is normally a fun, active hedgie. Over the past couple of days there have been a few problems. He had been itching/ biting his belly/chin and was running around like a loon because I'm assuming he...

    Over the past little while I've been hearing Gretta made some weird noises during the day- like a smacking kind of noise. She usually hides herself pretty well so I can't usually see her. Tonight she decided to camp out in her igloo and I heard her doing it again. I went to look and it...
  15. Feet and legs
    A couple days ago I noticed that Buddy hadn't eaten as much as usual and I assumed it was stress and then today I realised that he couldn't reach the food because his foot was trapped in a thread coming from a piece of fabric i had placed in his cage. It's obvious he tried to reach his food...
  16. Feet and legs
    Hello all! I just got home to find my baby boy had a bit of a bleeding toe. I have a comfort wheel which he adores (he's a big runner) and so I was surprised to find blood on his toe. When I walked into the room he was still running on his wheel, so I went to clean the wheel for the night and...
