    My hedgehog Connor Chestnut is coming into his third week with us and is unfortunately pretty sick. He was surrendered to us through the HWS by a family that could no longer care for him, but had treated him very well and told us everything they could. We knew he was getting over an ear...

    I just got back from the vet, and wanted to document my situation here to hopefully help someone else! About six weeks ago, Penny began losing quills. It wasn't many quills and I spotted new quill growth, so I didn't think much of it. About two weeks ago, I had some health issues, and after...

    I have my almost 3 yr old little girl Hazel suffering from a bad skin infection. On Tuesday I noticed she had scabs, older ones plus fresh ones along her belly sides and skirt areas.
