  2. Feet and legs
    Once I caught Reggie sleeping on her right side with her two left legs sticking up in the air at a 45 degree angle. As soon as I lifted up the blanket she immediately curled up, embarrassed. What a weirdo. So last night when I saw she had a leg up I thought it was just silly! But after I took...
  3. 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...

    Hello, this is my first post, I just got back from vacation that lasted a full month, I had to leave my hedgehog at home with my mother. She hadn't taken him out every single day like I do (Maybe every 2-4 days), but now that I am home, I noticed his eye is bigger, red around it, and the eye is...

    Hi guys, I recently came back from a vacation to find my hedgehog's feet and legs were swollen, skin dry and peeling, and nails looked discolored. I also noticed her ears were hardened at the tips and darker. I gave her an oatmeal bath to soothe her skin and realized she was losing a lot of...

    Hi everybody, I just recently found this large hard swollen bump near my hedgehogs right leg while bathing her. I'm very concerned and can't call the vet until tomorrow, she's always been healthy, eats alot, drinks alot, runs her wheel, maybe she hurt herself on the wheel? Can anyone help me...
  8. Feet and legs
    I had been noticing one of Ed's toes was swollen with what appeared to be dried blood near his nail for a couple of weeks and kept an eye on it. I tried taking his wheel out to see if this improved swelling, but when I didn't see results, I took him to the vet. He has been on an antibiotic...
  9. Feet and legs
    I just noticed what look's like an infected toe/toenail on Mali's back foot today when I went to cut her nails. I haven't checked her feet in a week or so, so not sure how long it's been. She isn't having any trouble running, though, and doesn't seem to favor it at all. I gave her a long foot...

    Hello. My hedgehog Riceball is two years ten weeks old. I gave him a bath yesterday and I noticed his testicles seems slightly enlarged. I don't know if I'm just seeing things (I'm hyper paranoid when it comes to my hedgie) but they seem bigger than usual, and slightly red. I asked my bf for a...
  11. Feet and legs
    Hey guys, first post. I've had Watson for almost 3 years now and he's been one of the best pets I could ever have. I noticed this weekend that one of his little fingers was really swollen. It doesn't seem to bug him too much, but he didn't eat near as much as he normally does. I attached the...

    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?

    Milkiey, my 4 years old hedgehog, had his right eye swollen and and there's some kind of membrane, like the white stuffs of cataract eyes but this white membrane is crumpled up and sticking to his swollen eye. I'm not sure if it's just some kind of dirt, but I tried rubbing it and it just won't...
