  1. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My hedge of 4 years stopped running on his wheel a few days ago. I've had him since he was 8 weeks old and this is the first big change of behavior. I don't think it's age related because it happened so suddenly. I washed his wheel 5 days ago, and it has yet to be pooped on (usually a mess)...
  2. Feet and legs
    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...

    Hey yall ! Cecil is 2 now and fat as HECK. His dad was one of breeder's biggest hedgies (in the 800-900g range) and his mom wasn't the tiniest thing (I think somewhere bt 400-600g), so a bit of it is genetic. Cecil weighs ~740g. Vet did a physical (not an Xray though, hesitant about...
  4. General Questions
    I know I am supposed to provide my hedgehog with a wheel and I will. It's just that the breeder I got her from never gave her hedgehogs running wheels and was strongly against it - or rather she said that wheel time should always be supervised because they can easily "run themselves to death"...
  5. Feet and legs
    I own a 6 month old hedgehog named Belle, generally things have been going well but we've started to have problems with her feet its a pretty long story but I'll just give the short version. Back in November we had to buy a temporary wheel for my hedgehog after i accidentally broke her...

    Hi all, long time form reader, first time poster :) First off, my name is Julie and I'm the hogmom of 5 year old Henrietta. Recently, Henrietta has had a bit of a limp. After running in her ball for about an hour, I noticed that she limps on her left hind leg. She doesn't have any issues...
  7. Wheels
    So my precious Princess Quillia is now three months old. I bought her one of those flying saucer wheels at petco. She did just fine with it for about three weeks, I bought the largest size. About a week ago the wheel started making loud irritating squeaking, and I cannot fix it for the life...

    Hello! I signed up today, and may use this frequently as my pet is the center of my existence. I have an adorable little hedgie whom I take great care of. Or at least, I like to think so. His name is Fiore. I pick him up everyday, and sit him on my lap. He used to huff, hiss or click a LOT when...
  9. General Questions
    I don't actually own a hedgie, I am just interested and curious about them. So bit of a hypothetical, I'm aware Hedgehogs like to run and explore, so many owners supply running wheels to fulfil this need. I was wondering if you could produce the same results from some kind of running track...
  10. Quills
    Hi, I'm a new hedgie owner. I got Gilbert approximately three weeks ago now. On Friday he officially turned 9 weeks old, he's been losing a few quills here and there when we interact or when I hold him in his snuggle bag. I'm curious if I am still technically bonding with him while he is just...

    Hello! Background info: So, my hedgehog, Dexter, is about 14 weeks. I got him when he was about 12 weeks because I was moving to a new place, so the breeder kept him on hold for me from 8 weeks, when I normally would have gotten him. He is my first hedgehog. Anyway, I have noticed (he has...

Please help with any advice. what can i do or change to help him and keep him happy. also i put an old shirt of mine...
  13. General Questions
    when I am having cuddle time with Luna I always hold her against my chest and hand under her butt it seems to be her favorite position but sometimes she will wake up kinda stick her butt up and run in place with her back legs. I seen her do this in other positions and sometimes when shes not...
  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My hedgehog, Scoop, has always loved running on her wheel. She didn't have a wheel before we adopted her, and she took to it immediately. Lately though, she hasn't been running on it at all. She is walking around just fine when I take her out and her nails aren't long. I keep it dark, just...
  15. Wheels
    Hi Everyone! So this is not my first hedgie, but i've recently adopted a new little baby boy i have named Quilliam. Quilliam refuses to use a typical bucket style wheel which in my experience my hedgies have always prefered so i bought a plastic flying saucer wheel instead. Quilliam loves to...
  16. 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...
  17. Wheels
    I've had my hedgie for about 3 weeks now, and finally got a good look at her running tonight! (Just enough ambient light). I have a flying saucer wheel and I now see that when she runs one direction, she does pretty well, but when she runs the other direction, she tends to slip off the wheel a...
