    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...

    Lokie is my first hedgehog and in the past 12-24 hours his mouth has had a number of red dots that I'm super worried about.

    Hey guys my male hedgehog is almost 1 year old. Today after his foot bath I noticed something weird coming out of his mouth. It looks like a piece of skin maybe...

    Hi, I have a vet appointment, but can't get in for a few days, so I thought I would check in and see what you you guys think while I wait. My hedgehog, Hope, has developed what I would call a rash around her mouth. The corners are pinkish/red irritated looking (no blood). The skin under her...
