  2. Eyes
    Hello! I was giving my hedgehog a bath a few days ago when I noticed her eye was super swollen and red with some discharge in between her eyelids. She wouldn’t open the infected eye either. I took her to the vet first thing the next morning and the vet agreed that it appears to be infected, so...

    Hello there, This is my first post here, but I could really use the advice. I have a four year old hedgehog that I love very dearly named Clyde. About 6 months ago Clyde began to get fluid in his lungs along with the beginning of heart failure. Since then I’ve been giving him multiple different...

    Hedgie has red spots for two days, i don't think it is caused by food allergies. Spots keep getting bigger, any assumption about the spots? What should I do? 😣😥
  5. Respiratory Infections
    Hi I have an almost 4 year old hedgehog and he hasn’t been eating for about 4 days and not drinking much. One of his eyes is red with crusties and his nose is dry and crusty too. The corner of his mouth seemed to have bled and had a cut on it but I couldn’t tell. And he is wobbly. I cleaned all...

  8. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    My hedgehog look like it had a seizure last night. I only say this because of the twitching and unresponsive plus she foamed a bit from mouth. She seemed to be gasping for air but was still breathing just really weirdly. Her limbs were twitching but wasn't able to walk, open her mouth, or get...

He wants food but when he takes it he bites it once then leaves it in his mouth and lays on his side again. I wouldn't be about to take him to a vet for about 2...
  10. Respiratory Infections
    I just got my hedgehog a few days ago and I LOVE HER SO SO SO MUCH! I am of course a paranoid hedgehog mother I feel like. She has been eating and drinking a lot of water and she was really active. However, last night, she started acting different. She still ate and drank, but instead of running...
  11. Hibernation
    Hey all! Quilly has not been acting right at all! He barley curls up into his normal spikey ball, he hardly eats, and hes only drinking minimally! He's even been laying outside of his little hut which is super strange for him :( The closest vet is still almost two hours away from me and i just...

    I've had my hedgehog for about 3 months already and had no problems, until lately. He's 7 month old male, the runt of the litter, but has had no problems. This morning his blanket was covered in green vomit and he hasn't eaten. He continues to vomit but there are no signs of blood. He has been...
  13. Bleeding, Male
    We use paper towels in our litter box and I woke up to see two little blood spots. They are a little less than dime sized. Everything else seemed normal, the paper towels were covered in poop and urine and the wheel was covered in poop as well. He ate all his kibbles, drank water, wasn't acting...
  14. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    So I couldn't sleep and smelled something terrible in Olive's cage. I looked and she had diarrhea all over her wheel!!! I cleaned the wheel and her cage immediately, then picked her up in a towel and got as much of it off her as I could, bath tomorrow. I was at an exotics store and the owner...
  15. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My little girl Coral has started to leave her hide to lay on her wheel. If she stays in her hide she will dig to the bottom to sleep on bottom of her cage. When she is on the floor she will leave her cozy sack to lay on the plastic table cloth I use to so she does not go potty on the carpet...

    Hi All, I am new to this forum and I am reaching out because I (and the vet) can't figure out what is wrong with Sprinkles. I adopted her and am her third owner so I have no idea how old she is, but I have had her for about 2 years. About six weeks ago I noticed a number of her quills...

    My 3 year old hedgehog may have WHS. Although I've read it's usually progressive, could it happen over night? One day Felix is playing like usual and the next he won't move, eat, or drink water. For a day I syringed him water and baby food mixed with water but no improvement so I took him to an...

    Wow, I just noticed I spelled problems wrong. Ughh. Anywhoo.... My hedgehog Boo is six and half months old. Being a curious little lady, she must chew on everything she encounters. That being said, she lost a fang while trying to pull up my floor carpeting. I didn't notice the missing tooth...

    I got Henrietta last month. She was 15 weeks old. After the first week, I've had some problems with her throwing up. I took her to the vet and found out she was eating her cat litter. They gave me some medicine for her and slowly but surely she started to get better. Then she started to act...
