  1. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    My 2 year old hedgie Mabel had a weird poo and pee tonight! Her poo has a small bit of mucus in it and has a greenish tone to it. It looks mostly brown, but some green is present. Also, she peed on my blanket and I noticed some white mucus stuff that I’ve never seen before. When I cleaned her...

    Out of pure curiosity, what is the ideal color, size, and texture for hedgehog poop?

    Right off the bat I'll say this- I do have a vet appointment scheduled for Pebbles for this Friday. This post is more of a "Am I missing something?/Questions to ask the vet?" Rather than a "Help, medical advice needed!". Pebbles is about three and a half years old. She eats one and a half...
  4. Bleeding, Male
    My hedgie had some blood in his poop last week, so I got him checked out and the vet said he was fine. Now he pooped some green/blood on Saturday and tonight seems a little wobbly. I am calling the vet tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone could help right now

    I’ve had my hedgehog sonic for over a year and for the past few months have seen a slight green tint in his poop, it has a pretty dark coloring and has a normal texture. He has normal behavior so I just assumed it was the color of his food. He eats the blue weight loss cat food, which I heard is...

    Hi everyone! My little guy just turned 1 this month. He is super active, very friendly and I have had no issues with him! Within the past 3 days I have noticed he is pooping skinny logs.

  8. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Whoops. Warning: lots of poop talk ahead. Our routine: I wake her up by taking her hide off her, and then leave her alone for a bit to wake up. She'll generally eat some kibble, but after about five minutes will start trying to burrow to go back to sleep. At that point, I pick her up and give...

    I am super worried that my hedgehog's poop is not normal! I spot clean his cage everyday very thoroughly so I know that all of this poop is from the last 20 ish hours. It just looks super watery and I don't know what to do. He is 4 months old and I got him a week ago. At first, I had him on a...
  10. General Questions
    Hi I just got a baby hedgehog (12 weeks old) and I have had him for three days now. I know from doing research that when a hedgehog is initially moved to a new home they will have different eating and poop colors for a bit as they adjust. However, my baby has small dark firm poops right now...

    Hello everyone, I got my first hedgie 3 days ago. She is around 2 months old. I did my research before, but I still just want to ask your opinions as well. Since the first day (we saw first poop all around the travel box) she is pooping and peeing all around when she is out and when she is in...

    Hey everyone! Quick backstory: My little Hermione had a rather unpleasant experience with a bit of loose string lately, she wrapped it around her foot and cut off the blood circulation for a short while. Luckily I discovered the issue very quick and got rid of the string and brought her to the...

    My hedgie Olive has suffered various health issues throughout her life. Recently, she has been dealing with elimination issues for several months now. The issue is that whenever I see her she always has a bit of dried poop stuck in her anus. I have been giving her a soak in warm water and...
  14. Wheels
    Hello everyone! I am becoming very frustrated with our current wheel situation. I have tried several different products and I just can't seem to find a permeant solution for our 1 year old hedge, Popeye. Currently, I am using You & Me Exercise saucer in large. It's working so far, but only...

I havent changed her diet at all since i got her form the breeder, but her poops are now green and runny. Is this something i should get her checked at the vet for? My breeder...
  16. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello. I am a new hedgehog owner and I feel like I freak out about any sudden change. I have not had a hedgehog before but have been doing my research and making changes to my care. His name is Pete and I think he’s 3-4 months old - I don’t know his exact age. I have noticed that his poop has...
  17. General Questions
    My hedgie, Hurley, is about 3 years old. At about 1 1/2, I introduced him to empty cardboard boxes and he LOVES to poop in them. For the most part, that is where he poops. He also likes to poop on his wheel, but what hedgie doesn't? Now that he associates cardboard boxes with pooping, he poops...

    I need help! I've had a hedgehod for about a month and a half and a few weeks ago I noticed blood stains around her cage. When I gave her a bath, I noticed it was coming from her underside, so I assumed it was coming from her vagina. I called a few vets offices and none could give me a straight...

    Hoping to get some advice please. A few days ago when getting Yuki out for the evening I noticed a little vomit patch in his sleeping area. It was quite small and I didnt think much of it as he's done it several times before in the past (usually whenever we tried to feed him an insect during...
