    My hedgehog Kvothe got hair wrapped around his foot a month ago or so. His foot was swollen and bleeding a little bit. I immediately got the hair from around his foot, but it cut into his skin more and caused more bleeding. I gave him some antibacterial cream and hoped it would heal up on its...

    Hi, my hedgehog was acting strange yesterday (hyperactive, running around and seeming to try and flip herself onto her back and biting her stomach) and I've noticed that she has a scab and some bite marks on her stomach now. She's not biting it right now, but what should I do to get her to stop...

    Hi all, I've been struggling with a wound on my hedgehog for almost a month now and nothing seems to be working..Here's the full story.

He's always had these weird dark spots on his skin. He even has one visible on his penis sheath. It looks bizarre, and I have no...

    My hedgehog is a year old now. Her name is Harley! I'm taking her to the vet as soon as they open this morning (I have to wait another three hours) but I wanted to ask if anyone has seen this before, because it certainly scared me. Took her out of the cage yesterday to clean it and a spot on...

    I realize that this is highly irresponsible of me-- I should just take my hedgie to the vet. I'm short on the cash right now, however, and waiting on the cash to come within the next week or so My hedgehog, Rosie, is roughly 7 months old, and has been happy as a clam. It's only recently that...

    Hi, I noticed these scabs yesterday that I assume is some sort of infection. I went straight to the vets but she didn't seem to bothered about them and just gave my bayril antibiotics so I saw a second vet and he didn't seem alarmed by them and said just see how the antibiotics go and keep an...
