  1. Bleeding, Female
    My little one, Artemis, is just over five years old; two weeks ago, I noticed two spots of blood in her dig box, quickly followed that night by a lot of blood in her urine. We went to the vet the next day, who recommended 14 days of antibiotics with a follow up appointment for ultrasound and X...
  2. Health
    My (almost) 4-year-old arthritic hedgehog was recently prescribed .04 ml of Tramadol every 12 hours. She's received 5 doses so far and her behavior has been a bit odd; I'm not sure if this is from her pain (or other arthritis complications) or perhaps from the medicine itself. The vet warned it...
  3. Off Topic
    Back when I first got Finn, he'd give me a poke and it would tingle for a while and then go away. Now, a year and a half later (I think?) when he pokes me I get a searing pain for about fifteen minutes and then small round itchy welts will start forming everywhere the quills made contact. I...

    Phoebe (born in sept) has already finished quilling I thought but has been losing a lot more lately, but that could be unrelated to the real issue.... Tonight I noticed several red bumps on her back and I started to touch one but she bit me (sign of pain?) so I wrapped her in her cuddle blanket...
  5. Health
    I'm very worried about my hedgehog. Tonight I held her for awhile in a fleece blanket and she was calm and normal and I put her back for two hours. I brought a cup of Luke warm water to clean a slightly bloody back toe nail:(. (I think it might be caused from excessive scratching from giving her...
  6. Eyes
    So last week I found a bump under my hedgehog's eye. I immediately took him to the vet who examined him and said that they were almost certain it was a abscessed tooth. We were sent home with an antibiotic that he has been on for a week now. Wednesday night when I went to give him his medicine I...

    Harry is a 2 1/2 year old african pygmy hedgehog and has always been in good health minus in May 2014 he was diagnosed with mild arthritis in his spine. Recently, about a week ago, I noticed he was not running in his wheel and he drags his front right leg. He has always been very active and...
  8. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello, About 2 days ago, I noticed that my male hedgehog (1 year and 10 months old) has been pooping a lot less than usual. He drinks from a water bowl (the water is changed about 3 times in a 24 hours period) and his food has not changed since I got him (Royal Canin Kitten 36). He seems to be...
