    Hi everyone, I have had my hedgehog for about a year and 2 months now. since I've had her I've been using this as my source for any problems we encounter or whether she can eat certain types of food. The last time I asked a question there weren't any replies so I hope someone can answer this as...

    I play with my Zed every day, and last saturday i picked him up and he had a big pink pimple-looking bump on his face. I was just at a vet for a bacteria he had and the vet said they could look at it but it would be best to watch it first to see if it goes away on its own. I looked today and...

    Beatrix has been losing a lot of quills and hair everyday each time she moves. When I first noticed it I took her to the vet and the vet checked for mites but couldn't see any under the microscope, but still gave me 2 treatments for mites for her anyways. She also gave me an anti-fungal shampoo...
  5. General Questions
    I just found this spot on my hedgehog; I just took her to the vet for her squinty eye and mites a couple days ago on Thursday. I was given ofloxacin for her eye scratch and revolution for her mites (i don't know if either of these meds could have contributed so I'm including them). So she has...

    I adopted a severely neglected Hedgie and have been trying to get him back to health. While giving him a bath, I noticed a red lump on his skin and saw that it had something sticking out of it and was bleeding! He had mites, so is it a product of the infestation? (A quill is also growing out of it)

    I got my hedgehog about 3 weeks ago. She was only 4/5 weeks old so I know she was young when I got her. Recently she has started quilling and I see new quills coming up but Im little concerned because she has shed all of her hair on her belly. Is that normal? so they just shed and regrow? I...

    Quilliam seems to have a pink bump under his chin that I just noticed today. My first thought was that it could be a mole because it kind of does look like there is a long hair coming from it that doesn't match his other hair on his under side. But also it could be something worse? He's still a...

    My hedgehog named Pickle has been losing fur recently. Her fur is very patchy, and it used to not be this bad. Her skin is also very dry and flaky, even though I mix Vitamin E oil into her bath water. She also has yellow discharge coming from her ears. She doesn't appear to be losing a lot of...

  12. Mites
    Hi Everyone! Me again. So Cannoli has been diagnosed with mites on Friday and today is Tuesday. He got his Revolution that day after his bath and an entire cage cleaning, his wheel, food dish, water bottle, etc. I also washed the rug in the room where I let him out as well as the wood floor...

    Hello! My little Princess is a recent addition after securing her from a home that didn't treat her with love. I've taken her to two different vets and I'm about to expand my hunt for a better vet to several hours from home to figure out what's going on with this little girl. Here's some info...

    Hi Everyone, My hedgie, Cannoli, has been very irritated and lethargic this week. I noticed this white, flakey, enflamed patch above his tail the other day. I took him to the vet yesterday who diagnosed him as having dry skin and gave me some medicated shampoo and fish oil. However, he has...

    Hi everyone :) My Luna is almost a year old now, and she's had issues with parasites and yeast infections in the past, which I've discovered simply by having the vet check her out because of scratching, but I've never seen her skin look like this before. She's been acting completely normal...
  17. Quills
    Hi, so my hedgehog has been having quill issues ever since she went through quilling. Now she's almost 2 and she's still having problems. She loses a ton of quills all the time and has noticeable quill thinning all over (I wouldn't call them bald spots). And every so often her skin gets super...

    I noticed a small brown bump on the outside of the skin on my hedgehog Louie's hind foot. I didn't think it was anything until it doubled in size in a week. I inspect it and noticed it was a rough bump that was coming off. I decided to clean his cage and give him a bath and I noticed the bump...
