    Hi everyone, the other day my hedgehog started developing red spots on his skin, along with some quill loss. I checked on him today and the red spots look a lot worse and I'm getting concerned. I've attached pictures.
  2. General Questions
    My hedgehog, Cami, is about 7 months old. I notice when she spikes up and her quills are criss-crossed, her skin is visible underneath. This is only when she spikes up. When she's completely relaxed, I can't see under her quills. My question is: is it normal to be able to see skin when she's...

    Hi, everyone! My hedgie, Ty, is about 3 months old. He was recently treated for mites, which seem to have cleared up. He is no longer losing quills, stratching, etc., and he is in a much better mood. However, a couple of nights ago, I found a patch of rough, almost scaly skin on one of his...

    So I had noticed Giz was scratching quite a bit, so I took her into the vet. All scrapings/tests came back negative. She told me to pick up some Humilac from Petco, but it's only available online. I ordered some Humilac through Amazon (after checking to make sure it was alright to use) so it...

    Hi. When I went to play with my hedgie (she's 5 months old) before work, I noticed she seemed more agitated than usual, and I noticed her skin seemed a little reddish in spots on her back. When she finally let me look at her face for her normal morning check-up, I was shocked to see the area...

    I've had my hedgie for about 2 months now, recently her skin has been getting horribly dry. Every morning her wheel is covered in little white flakes, I know its not mites since I've checked her thoroughly. A few days ago I gave her an oatmeal bath and put a few drops of flax oil in her food but...

    Today I went to a local pet store (not a big name store like Petco or Petsmart), and asked what they had for dry skin, for cats, and told them I have a hedgehog. These are some products they showed me. I have an almost-8-month old girl who is getting some wicked dry skin and dandruff, so I've...

    So Mr. Murloc is at it again with the quill loss! He was treated for mites and has since recovered. Recently he has been losing A TON of quills, i feel like just looking at him causes them to fall off! He isn't scratching or showing signs of discomfort like he did when he had mites. He is...
  9. Fecal & Intestinal issues
    Hey, so I've never posted here before because I usually find my answers from my breeder or using the search, but I haven't come across anything and I've lost a little faith in my breeder when she recommended I use ivermectin. My breeder gave me my new baby as a gift after my 6 month old hedgie...

    I just got my little benny out of his cage and underneath his little arm is a red swollen patch! I'm really worried it's really red and it seems like he is in pain. Please help! Is this normal? And what should I do to help him?

    I was cleaning Nina Rose's cage today and I noticed skin flakes around her "splatting" tile, and in her little coroplast hut. Is this normal or could the fleece be causing it? I was just thinking that maybe I could see the skin because of the fleece. I also notice skin flakes in her hedgie bag...

    I recently bought a 2.5 year old hedgie who may have been abused by her previous owner. She has two huge bald spots that are very dry and flaky on each side of her body. The pet shop owner where we bought her at gave us a spray bottle called "Lido -Med" it's an anti itch spray and aids in the...

    Hi everyone, I'm quite a new mommy for hedgehogs. I've recently adopted (now named) Popcorn from another family about a month ago almost two months. He's almost a year I believe his birthday is sometime this May. I'm just concerned since ever since I've gotten him, he seems to be itching all the...
  15. Quills
    I was drying Murloc after his bath and I noticed this odd lump in the area between his fur and quills. I just saw the vet on Thursday and he said Mur looks great and healthy. I'm not sure what this is thing is, it's kinda of hard but I can't tell because Murloc kept moving, it doesn't seem to...

    Hey guys my male hedgehog is almost 1 year old. Today after his foot bath I noticed something weird coming out of his mouth. It looks like a piece of skin maybe... It's slightly pink and it sticks out when he closes his mouth. He's acting normal, eating and drinking. Nothing is swollen, is it a...

    Please bare with me I really need some advice to help a little hedgehog! My husband and I rescued a very little baby hog over a year ago. He could barely walk, covered in ticks and alone. In the country where we live the attitude towards all animals is fairly brutal so for a little hedgehog he...

    My hedgehog is a year old now. Her name is Harley! I'm taking her to the vet as soon as they open this morning (I have to wait another three hours) but I wanted to ask if anyone has seen this before, because it certainly scared me. Took her out of the cage yesterday to clean it and a spot on...

    Just got back from the vet. Apparently he had called me this morning and asked if I could bring Penny in this am so she could relax and "unball." So glad that I didn't get that message, because it was so cold in there! I wouldn't have been comfortable leaving her all day in a strange place...
