Now i know this is normal but i was wondering if there is something i could do to get her to poop somewhere else so she doesnt keep stepping...

    Hi I'm a new hedgehog owner and my hedgehog, Iggy, has been home about a week. He uses the litterbox for pee and a but of poop but he smears the rest EVERYWHERE and I'm left to clean it all up. I was wondering if it is just a time thing and he'll get the hange of it and how long might that take...

    Hi everyone :) I just got back from going to my parent's house for four days. I left Gilbert with my boyfriend. We got Gilbert situated in boyfriend's bedroom. Gilbert's cage is the same, along with all his toys etc. My boyfriend told me Gilbert hasn't been pooping or peeing the normal amount...

    Hello, I bought my hedgehog about a week and a half ago. Shes bonded with me very quickly and is always very up and active so never leads me to believe anything is bothering her. It's 7:48am and I just woke up to check on her and I noticed a pile of poop that has a mixture of brown, green and...

    About a month ago I finished gradually switching both of my hedgehogs onto blue buffalo's basic sensitive solution. My girl hedgie is fine and has enjoyed it. My boy has too but thd last two days his poop has smelt like a mixture of wet dog/vomit/cat poop. He is acting normal and seems to...

    Hi, I just recently got my hedgehog Petey about a week and a half ago and he had some neon greenish stool. I became worried so I took him to the vet and the vet took a fecal sample as well as did an examination on him. She gave me some meds and his poop went from diarrhea to a Darkish Foresty...
  7. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hey, so I've never posted here before because I usually find my answers from my breeder or using the search, but I haven't come across anything and I've lost a little faith in my breeder when she recommended I use ivermectin. My breeder gave me my new baby as a gift after my 6 month old hedgie...

    I have a 4 1/2 month old hedgie named Nora, I've been finding it hard to take her out of the cage to play because she never stops pooping. All she seems to do is eat and poop, its like a cycle for her. Therefore I can never have her out to play because she poops and pees everywhere. I don't know...

    Nina has started quilling (who knew she had so many?!) and her poop has also changed a bit. There has been no change in her food or water intake though. Recently her poop has been a little soft with some diarrhea but not much. I gave her a foot bath tonight and part of her poop was green...
  10. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello there, I have an 11 week little girl that's been adjusting wonderfully. However, I'm a little concerned about her bowel movements. If she's active while in my hands during our daily bonding time her poops always seem to be pretty green. However, the poop in her litter box and her wheel...
  11. Wheels
    Milo is my two month old hedgehog and he refuses to do his duty anywhere but in his wheel. Ill occasionally find some poop in his igloo but I would have to say 90% of the time his wheel gets fully covered in 2 days if I dont clean it. Which I do almost every single day if its needed. I have him...

    Hi everyone! I'm a new hedgie owner. I've only had my hedgie for about a month or so and everything is totally normal, except in the past couple days his poo has changed. I wouldn't say it's diarrhea, but it's definitely a bit watery. It varies by the day now, but it used to be solid all the...

    My baby girl, Eden, has been in my home since the beginning of April. I never had a hedgie before and I've always wanted one, So it was a dream came true when I got her. I first started noticing she was constantly itching herself but I tried the black cloth trick and found no residue so I...

    I have had Maximus for just about one month now and he adjusted wonderfully. EXCEPT for one small problem... He will not stop using the bathroom while he is still burrowed in his blanket in his house during the day. He has all but peed right through the bottom of the box and I cannot figure...

    Hello everyone! Im a new mommy to my Flynn, whom I'm cuddling with right now! I'm having issues potty training, even though I've only had him about a week and a half. (He's about 7 weeks) I realize I have to be extremely patient and he may never learn, but his pooping schedule seems off and I...
  16. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hello! I'm new to the site, and I need some advice. my lil baby Teemo (he's 9weeks about) doesn't seem to be pooping in his cage. I got him just about a week ago, and when I take him out he will often poop on a towel or something, but I can never find any poop in his cage. I've even tried taking...
  17. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    This may be an odd or silly question but I've been wondering since i got him and I figure it's safer to ask. My hedgehogs strains quite a bit when he poops or urinates. I figure the standing stock still, maybe putting his feet apart is normal, but then he hunches up slightly and starts breathing...

    Hi everyone, Paranoid rookie hedgie owner here! I brought home my little Pearl (8 wks old) about two weeks ago and can't seem to shake the fear that something is wrong with her. I've been watching her pooping patterns closely (and checking these threads constantly) and here is what I have been...

    I'm brand new to Hedges--and oh, my, are they just adorable! I agreed to watch a little hedgie boy while his college-student-parents left the dorm for winter break. I've had Waldo for 2.5 days. At first he was noticably freaked out--to be expected after traveling in a car, then being left in...
  20. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My hedgehog was staying at my boyfriends house for the last 3 months and for the last few days he said she hasn't been running on her wheel. He said that he heard her one night and she wasn't really running but sort of walking. The wheel we have it silent so it is possible she was only walking...
