    Hi all, I wanted to create a post in memory of our beloved Hedgies and to help those that find themselves in the place we were. Our Hedgies was almost 3, happy and healthy as could be. Suddenly she became lethargic, not eating or drinking, and was dragging her back legs. We desperately called...

    Hello everyone. Our hedgehog, Quilliam, won’t eat the food we put in her cage anymore and isn’t going poop or pee. She is 2 and a half years old. A little over a month ago, she had teeth removed at the vet and switched from a cat food kibble diet to a liquid diet of a mixture called Carnivore...

    Hello all, I am looking for a bit of advice. I have another thread going here where i keep a medical log of my hedgehog's health issues, but this topic is different, and i would like to get answers. First of all, medical history. We got our little girl at 7 month old (so the shop told us)...

    My hedgehog is a little over 4 months old, and apart from a URI when I first took her home (~6/7 weeks old) which was quickly treated, she hasn't had any health issues until now. This morning when I woke up I found her laying out in the open on her stomach in her cage instead of in her igloo...

    Last night our hog got their tooth stuck on a blanket they were pulling on with their mouth. They panicked and pulled and scratched at it and in the process gave themselves a scratch and their tooth started to bleed. The bleeding stopped quickly and our guy seemed to not be super bothered by the...

    I have decided that it's definitely time for Prudence to have a check up. She hasn't been running on her wheel since October, and has recently been much less active in her playpen. For the longest time since October she was very active outside of her cage, eating everything, drinking lots of...

    Hi. I got Henry 10 day ago and he is only about 9 weeks old. He had been a very active hog running on his wheel and exploring a lot and running around pooping everywhere for the first few days except for yesterday. He has been kind of lethargic for about 24 hours. I didn't find any poop on his...

    Hey everyone! I'm in a bit of a pickle here... My boyfriends hedgehog, Emily, is acting very worrisome. She's shaking and moving very very slow. She also seems very lethargic and I managed to briefly get ahold of my S/O. He said she was breathing strangely, huffing in an abnormal matter. Her...

    Hello everyone! I apologize if I'm not posting in the correct place. My hedgehog, Mimsie (Mims for short), has been very very sick for about a week, and I'm looking for help to figure out what's going on. We've been to the vet almost every day for fluids and antibiotics, but she still isn't...

    My boyfriend got a hedgehog (hedgie is 2 months old) but he's insanely incompetent so I've been trying to help him with it. We live in Canada and the weather here is freezing. Two days ago (3/3/15) we had a power outage and there was obviously no heat getting to my boyfriends house. I asked my...

    Hello, we have an adult hedgehog who is very ill and the only vet who takes exotics within 100 miles of here is on vacation until Monday :cry:. Splinter has not been eating or drinking for 4 days now. He is becoming increasingly lethargic and is no longer his cute, grumpy little self. He is...

    We have an adult hedgehog, Splinter. The last 4 days he has no been eating or drinking and has become extremely lethargic and progressively less responsive. He doesn't even roll up to lay down or sleep like he normally does. He lays flat on his stomach like a limp rag. We have been trying to...
