  1. Feet and legs
    My hedgehog literally just ran out of pain medication two days before his vet appointment. There are supposed to be a hundred doses in total once a day, but it hasn't even been 2 months. He had the last bit today. Is there anything I can give him just for tomorrow night? Metacam's bottle makes...

    Frisk has a swollen toe. I took him to the vet. He got oral meds twice a day for 7 days and a soap to bathe his foot in. 9 days later, it's still swollen if not a bit bigger. I dont know what to do. I definitely can't afford tests done on him. It doesn't seem to be bothering him much. I'm...
  3. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello, My hedgehog got prescribed Baytril. I know vomiting and loss of appetite can be a side effect of it, but I was just wondering if there is any way I can ensure he's eating and drinking enough. I noticed that almost every time he eats his food he'll gag some of it back up. He can keep the...

    My hedgehog is around 4 years old, and the doctor is almost sure he has lung cancer. Because of finances, the doctor's near-certainty that he has cancer, and the hedgie's perpetually cranky temperament, we have not done extensive or heavy testing for fear that it would make things even worse...

    Hi I thought I'd start a new thread for my other concerns. I'd like to take Yuki for a general health check this Friday (I've had him for 7 weeks and he is almost 7 months, bought from an exotic pet store here in Tokyo). He does potentially have a few issues too, like very dry skin and...
  8. Skin
    So Gris went to the vet for the first time. I was not very happy with my experience overall. She didn't seem to be open to handling him without a giant towel. She was impatient with him being unwilling to open. She seemed a little too scared of his popping. She yanked on his quills with...
  9. Teeth & mouth issues
    I brought my little Sniffles to the vet today, he was really unhappy being there (he's normally not so nervous). Anyway, she put him under just enough so he'd relax so she could examine him. Turns out, he has inflamed & swollen gums (part of his gum is so swollen it's cover one of his teeth so...
