    Hi guys, I've had My hedgie (Orinocco) for quite a while now and I've recently moved out of my parents house and he has been living with them for like 2 months and I saw him today and he has a black growth on his foot. His living conditions are that he stays in my old room and roams around the...

  3. Respiratory Infections
    Hi! Recently I have noticed my hedgehog, Colby, making some noises in his sleep. Every time I went to check on him while he was making these noises, he seemed normal and could breathe just fine. I thought maybe he just began snoring in his old age (he turned 3 in October), but recently he has...

  7. 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...
  9. Skin
    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? 😣😥
  10. 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...

  13. 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...

    Hi, my hedgehog Tate was fine yesterday and walking around his cage normal but today hes not moving much and mostly laying on his side. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

    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...

    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...
  20. 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...
