  1. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    First of all please let me thank you for even clicking on this, I've never had a sick hedgie before so I'm pretty hysterical right now. Alright so today I went in to check on my hedgehogs because I finally have a day off and I've missed them tons lately as I haven't seen them much because I've...
  2. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    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...

    Hello, we have an adult hedgehog who is very ill and the only vet who takes exotics within 100 miles of here is on vacation until Monday :cry:. Splinter has not been eating or drinking for 4 days now. He is becoming increasingly lethargic and is no longer his cute, grumpy little self. He is...

    We have an adult hedgehog, Splinter. The last 4 days he has no been eating or drinking and has become extremely lethargic and progressively less responsive. He doesn't even roll up to lay down or sleep like he normally does. He lays flat on his stomach like a limp rag. We have been trying to...
  5. Bleeding, Female
    I am at the end of my rope right now, and completely distraught. My Amy is just over a year old, and has been suffering from bleeding since late December. I don't know what to do anymore... She had a uterine polyp back in December that I had surgically removed, and have been back to the vet 4...
  6. Respiratory Infections
    I got Gretta in December and she is aprox 2 years old. She has never had any health concerns in the past. She eats well (although she is picky about trying new things) and loves running on her wheel. Over the past few days I've noticed that her nose has been runny. She isn't sneezing at all...

    My hedgehog hasn't been very active in the past few days. I've seen no new poops in the morning, when normally there would be a few. It looks like he may be eating and drinking a tiny bit, but not as much as normal. It appears that he has been sleeping through the night. It's really hot, his...
  8. Skin
    Hi so I recently adopted a 2.5 year old albino hedgehog. Her previous owners couldn't take care of her anymore and I am not sure what her living conditions were (abused possibly). On both sides of her body she has a big bald spot and it is incredibly dry. On one side, it looks like she also has...

    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...
  10. Quills
    Hi, my little hedgie is 13months old now and I know this winter her skin was very dry and she would scratch herself a bit, I tried to help her as much as possible and noticed it was getting a little better. But now, in the past week I've found about a dozen of her quills around her cage and...

    Hello everyone! Wondering if you can give me any advice or reassurance. My hedgehog, Rosie, went to the vet on Friday, acting very strange. She hadn't eaten, drank anything, or even moved that night. She went to the vet that morning, and he said it was the "time of the year" for them, and she...
  12. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi, so my little Charlie is now 1 year old and I've noticed for the past few weeks she'll kind o stop and do this little movement that looks somewhere between shivering and like a nerve twitch and make a small almost huffing sound. She'll do this a few times in a row and then carry on to either...

    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...
  14. Off Topic
    So I've recently just fell on an article explaining that hedghogs carry salmonella and you need to be very careful. I've had my hedgehog for over a month and never even know this, therefor was never really careful with washing my hands after handling and that. This worries me to know if I was...

    So I brought home my hedgehog four days ago and he seemed to be doing fine. He spent his first night exploring and settled into his cage well. However yesterday he didn't really get up or move at all except for about half an hour when he got up to eat. Tonight when he woke up he ran on his wheel...
  16. Hibernation
    Hi everyone I have a female hedgehog that I have adopted from my friend. She is a about 1 year old now. Recently she has been resting more often that usual and looks like she is sick. She still eats and drink, however she does not walk as much as usual at night time and kept lying down and she...

    Porkchop started making this weird noise when she breathes as of yesterday and I don't know why. I took a video of it: Should I be worried? I have Baytril, but we've spent $1,000 on vet bills for her in the last two months so we're so broke. At the end I show how swollen her vagina is...
  18. Hibernation
    I have a year old hedgie named Quigley who I adopted back in May from a friends mom who was moving. Had a history of an upper respiratory problem when he was nine weeks old but pulled through. I notice about 24 hours ago that he was very sluggish when I went to pick him up (not huffing like he...

    Hello, I am new to this forum. I rescued my hedgie, Quillie (neutered female) in March of this year. According to the previous owners, she was approximately 1 year old and had been passed around from home to home because she is antisocial. I am absolutely sure that most of the reason she is...
