    Hi! I'm the mum of Jeffrey, an adopted adult male hedgie, about two years old (the breeder didn't know how old and it's not really possible to tell).

    I play with my Zed every day, and last saturday i picked him up and he had a big pink pimple-looking bump on his face. I was just at a vet for a bacteria he had and the vet said they could look at it but it would be best to watch it first to see if it goes away on its own. I looked today and...

    My hedgehog has a tiny lump under his pinky toenail. Our vet is out of the city for a while, so I haven't been able to check up with her. It looks almost like a pimple to me. I was debating if it was a bone since it feels pretty hard, but it doesn't seem to cause any discomfort since he still...

    I got this hedgehog from someone and he has white bumps on him. Like large zits or something. I could not find anything online that looked anything like it, including on this site.
