  1. Bleeding, Male
    I posted a week or two ago because I thought my hedgehog, Chowder was dying. It seems to have been a hibernation attempt. He's doing better now. I have a CHE set up and a heating pad under his cage if the temp dips below 73. He has been eating and drinking on his own for several days. He is...
  2. Bleeding, Male
    This is the first time my hedgehog Spice has done this before. His penis area does look a little more swollen than normal but he just casually keep walking around after the bleeding. There were quite a few drops too. there are't any vets around that help hedgehogs in my neighborhood. What do I...
  3. Introductions
    I would like to know what is better to have? Male or Female? Which one smells? Which one has a better personality? Etc...
  4. Skin
    I adopted a severely neglected Hedgie and have been trying to get him back to health. While giving him a bath, I noticed a red lump on his skin and saw that it had something sticking out of it and was bleeding! He had mites, so is it a product of the infestation? (A quill is also growing out of it)
  5. Bleeding, Male
    I came home wanting to play with my hedgehog, Milo. But when I picked him up, there was blood on some of his quills, legs and quite alot of blood around the penis area, I've inserted a picture for reference. He's acting normal but I'm very worried about this. I saw a couple of forums saying they...
  6. Adults
    Regretfully I am needing to rehome my hedgie due to moving states. He is 8 months old, very healthy happy and friendly. I want to make sure he is taken care of well and loved as a family member. In case they don't appear, pictures of him are attached. Please contact me here or via phone at...
  7. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hey! I've Had my beloved little Harold for almost a year now. (he will be two in December) and we got off to a bump start but in about two months he was very well behaved and would even let those he didn't know hold him and pick him up without making a fuss. I got an internship over the summer...
  8. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi! I've had my baby for about a month now and he's never done this before. I heard him squealing last night in his snuggle sack. I went and checked on him and he was completely fine, no injuries nothing out of the ordinary. I've done some research regarding hedgie noises and the sounds he was...
  9. Cages
    Hi there, me again! I can't seem to find a definitive answer on this, but I'm wondering how big a distance I should give my male and my females from each other. At the moment, they live in a nice and big two-storey homemade wooden cage that my dad and I built. At the top is Yue and Tema. I...
  10. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hiya, Don't know if anyone has any ideas, but Buddy is about 4 years old now and the last few nights I've noticed his pee has had a way stronger smell than usual. I didn't think much of it because other than that he's acting totally normal, until today when I heard him making squeaky noises...
  11. Rescue
    I have a hedgie named Harley. I rescued him from a family with his sister, Chie, but she passed away from aggressive tumors in her belly. It was tragic but I did what I could after I got her. I have 2 hedgies in my house after Chie's passing (My first hedgie, Delilah and Harley.) and I can't...
  12. General Questions
    So I recently got a new hedgehog from my cousin because she was not taking care of it properly so I took it off her hands and I already have a female hedgehog so I was wondering is it okay that I have them both? They're in separate cages and the cages are not by each other and they haven't met...
  13. Bleeding, Male
    Hi guys I have a 2 year old male hog and I noticed he had a little bit of brownish gunk from his penis and so I wiped it off and maybe I'm just being paranoid or something, (he hates being on his back or anything but on his feet/belly when cuddling so I don't get to see his belly area often...
  14. General Questions
    Hello. I recently acquired a new hedgehog (more of a rescue). Im trying to figure out an approximate age. When arriving to pick him up they said he was 8 weeks old..and when I asked how long they had him their response was "8 weeks". Upon thinking, Im almost sure this baby was 16 weeks old at...
  15. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello. I've owned my hedgehog, Finnegan, for almost four months now. Since he is a boy he does enjoy some boy time. It was more frequent when he was younger and it doesn't seem to be happening too often anymore. A few days ago when I was handling him he got a little too excited. I noticed that...
  16. Health
    Hi everybody! So I'm new to this. I just got my first hedgehog as a gift about 3 weeks ago. I named him Sonic! I was told he's 8 months old and is a male. I'm not exactly sure how to tell if that's correct though..Anyways, today I was holding him and noticed a little lump on his belly near his...
  17. Bleeding, Male
    So just right now I took Teddy out for a cuddle and I noticed his bag had a bit of red on it, so I of course checked him out and sure enough there was the smallest bit of blood staining around his private parts... I don't know what to do as it's almost 11 pm, I'm making him a vet appointment...
  18. Bleeding, Male
    So, I was cleaning my hedgehogs wheel and noticed that there was blood all around the inside. there wasn't too much; just a very thin coating on the surface of his wheel. I checked him over and found nothing wrong, until later when I flipped him over and he had his you-know-what out. there was a...
  19. Bleeding, Male
    So, Hammish has had this hard, dark red/brown crusted scab on his armpit ever since I came back home from Texas to Louisiana, his normal environment, and just went through a bad attitude stage because I had been wearing aloe vera and baby lotion from a sunburn, which he did not like at all...
  20. Skin
    Hi there, completely new to the forum and the work of hedgies. A month ago I got my little guy Hugo everything's been great, up until 4 days ago when noticed the rawness on his rump. It doesn't look infected (no pus or blood) but it looks terribly painful. I'm really just seeming advice as to...
