  1. Teeth & mouth issues
    My little Belle is around 1.5 years old and it came to my attention, tonight, that one side of her lip seems to be a little swollen? I'm posting here to see if anyone has dealt with something similar. Before this though I have noticed that she has been losing teeth. In total she has lost 3, her...
  2. Teeth & mouth issues
    Lokie is my first hedgehog and in the past 12-24 hours his mouth has had a number of red dots that I'm super worried about. I'm about to take him to his Vet tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on being able to alleviate some of his potential suffering. He's had no real change...

  6. Skin
    Last night I saw what I thought was poop in Berlioz's "armpit" area so tonight I gave him a bath. While I was washing him I saw that he actually has two sores, one under each arm. He has been just as sweet as ever and is not acting like he's in pain at all but I'm still worried. I didn't know...
