    Hi all, As some of you know, Quilly was sick last fall and they weren't sure what he had. CAT scans, bloodwork, ultrasounds, and X-RAYS were all inconclusive. But the good news is that over the last nearly-6 months, a daily antibiotic and antimicrobial have significantly reduced the signs of...

    I rushed Breckenridge to the vet a week ago after I found an abscess growing at his quill line. She removed the excess skin, cleaned out the wound, and dressed it to prevent further infection. After testing him for mites, it came back positive and I was devastated. She gave him an Ivermectin...

    Griswold has had issues pretty much since I got him back in December of 2013. His quills fall out more than they should and they are not growing back nearly as much as they are supposed to causing him to be balding. He has also had very dry skin - at one point flaking off of him like snow. The...

    Needles is my first hedgehog. And I love him dearly. Lately, I've noticed that he's been scratching a lot and I thought it must be mites. At the same time, I noticed that his belly, feet and ears got super crusty and flaking off a lot! I bought him to a vet and the doctors told me that it wasn't...

    Hey everyone, I'm in a panic. I took in a rescue, Hope, a few months back. Among many problems, she had severe mites. She was treated with 3 monthly doses of Revolution. I had to take her in for a fecal test for mushy poop, and they found not just bacteria but mite exoskeletons. The says we need...
