  1. Teeth & mouth issues
    Hi! My boy is almost 5 now. He lost one of his fangs a few months ago and I took him to the vet but she found nothing wrong. We did not put him under for an in depth exam because it was risky and he got along just fine afterward. Just yesterday or today I noticed he lost his other fang. He is...
  2. Teeth & mouth issues
    Hi guys! I was curious if any other hedgie owners have had their babies teeth removed? Mine had 8 removed, and one filed down for comfort. But he has been foaming and drooling at the mouth for a while. When he sleeps and wakes up he ends up covered in his own drool. Could this be an issue...

    Last night our hog got their tooth stuck on a blanket they were pulling on with their mouth. They panicked and pulled and scratched at it and in the process gave themselves a scratch and their tooth started to bleed. The bleeding stopped quickly and our guy seemed to not be super bothered by the...
  4. Teeth & mouth issues
    My hedgie's mouth is pretty busted :( He's around 4 years old. Vet says is because I fed him dry cat food (as per recommended by several hedgehog sites, including here). I used RC Indoor 7 - and for the past year or so I blended it to make the pellets smaller... I know cat food used to...
  5. 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...
  6. Health
    So my little guy has been having a lot of issues eating the past month or so. My girlfriend (who is a vet tech) helped me look him over and we found he's lost a lot of teeth. I started to wet his food down to make it more palatable for him and that seemed to help for a little bit. I am counting...
  7. Diet and Nutrition
    I think I spoiled my hedgehog a bit. I started giving her the option of hard kibbles and high quality wet cat food every night. Well, she noticed the wet food and almost immediately started ignoring the hard kibbles. She's healthy and eating well, but whenever I try to add some kibbles - even...
  8. General Questions
    Hey everybody! I just got my hedge over the weekend. He is 2 years old, was a friend's roommate's pet, and I've known him all his life but he's just recently become mine. His last owner was a little... inattentive, and I took him more out of a desire to help him than a desire to have a...
  9. Teeth & mouth issues
    Hi all, My little love Oliver hasn't been eating the last three days, and his water intake is very limited, but his activity remains mostly normal. I believe it's because of dental issues: I checked his mouth (can't get him to stay uncurled long enough to snap a picture), and on the lower left...
  10. Teeth & mouth issues
    My little hedgie seems to be having issues with is teeth. I was just wondering if anyone else had ever had these issues/know what it could be. I already have a vet appt for Thursday but am very anxious. Jeppy's teeth on on side along the bottom are all blackish/green looking. Obviously infected...
  11. Teeth & mouth issues
    My baby is Jolie and she is approximately 6 years of age. I took her to the vet last week because she was developing a knot on the side of her face. The vet determined that she had an abscessed tooth. They did surgery to remove two of her teeth and discovered a mass on the roof of her mouth as...
  12. Teeth & mouth issues
    Today while I was taking out Martin's bedding to give it a wash, I noticed something strange drop out of it and into his cage. I picked it up and it seems to be a tooth! It looks to be a molar / back tooth - definitely too large to be a fang. It also has the root and everything, so it wasn't...
  13. Teeth & mouth issues
    Quick background: I have a rescue that came to me just skin and bone, nearly starved. I realized he couldn't eat hard food and when I added water he gobbled his food down like a champ. Fast forward 2 months, he's up to a healthy weight and eats a healthy amount but still can't chew, even...

    When are hedgies supposed to lose baby teeth? Shelby 9 months old and still hasn't lost a tooth yet. She doesn't seem to have any sore teeth either, because she's eating fine.

    Hello! My name is Trinity! Nice to meet you all! I have a 3 year old boy, his name is Coconut, and for the past 6 months or so he's had to have 2 surgeries for oral health issues, resulting in 18 teeth lost (The reasoning behind the lumps/infections are unknown). ): His last surgery was today...
  17. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    When my hedgehog sleeps on me she sometimes wakes with a grinding teeth sound. It doesn't sound like she's upset and she's completely relaxed. Someone else recently said it sounds like she's chewing on kibbles which is exactly what it sounds like. She's only about two months old so I don't know...
  18. Teeth & mouth issues
    I brought my little Sniffles to the vet today, he was really unhappy being there (he's normally not so nervous). Anyway, she put him under just enough so he'd relax so she could examine him. Turns out, he has inflamed & swollen gums (part of his gum is so swollen it's cover one of his teeth so...
