  1. Feet and legs
    My hedgie completely chewed off one of his toenails today. He was covered in a worrying amount of blood when I found him but I managed to wash almost all of it off.

  2. Feet and legs
    I went to go check up on my hedgehog and one of his toes was bleeding like crazy! It really worried me, but the bleeding has stopped now and I took care of it.

We have had her for 3 weeks and she is 8 months old - we rescued her from a woman that just didn't want her anymore - and if your saw my previous post in 'general questions'...
  6. Feet and legs
    :confused: My little hedgie came into my life a little over a year ago. I did some reading up before I actually got her, so I knew at least a little of what I was getting into, but I definitely don't know everything. She's seemed healthy during the time I've had her, and she still seems...
