  1. Skin
    Has anyone ever used CBD oil for hedgehog dry skin/itchiness or know anything about using it? We've been to two different vets several times over the past year for Bean's dry skin and have treated for mites, bacterial infections, and fungal infections with no result. Even natural "remedies"...
