    Our Sonic has this lump behind his ear. It’s a whiteish color and you can see what I assume are little pink veins. I called the vet but they don’t work on hedgehogs very often and would have to put him to sleep just to look at it. He’s 4.5 years old so we’re nervous to do that. He’s eating and...

    Hey there, So my hedgehog was diagnosed with oral cancer on the lower jaw the other day. The vet says the tumor is most likely an aggressive type of cancer, and it has already started to affect his teeth and jaw. I’ve been looking through all the forms and have learned that oral cancer is one of...

    Hello there, This is my first post here, but I could really use the advice. I have a four year old hedgehog that I love very dearly named Clyde. About 6 months ago Clyde began to get fluid in his lungs along with the beginning of heart failure. Since then I’ve been giving him multiple different...

    Hi, today I was holding my 3 year old female hedgehog Leni, when I noticed she had an unusual bump on her leg after she had pooped. I think it might’ve appeared overnight because yesterday I was playing with her and I hadn’t seen anything out of the ordinary. I have no idea what it is or what it...

    On July 1st I noticed a large red lump on Beatrix, but being Sunday and Canada day, the vet was closed until Tuesday. When they saw her they said that it was more likely a tumor than an infection but couldn't know for sure without putting her under and taking a biopsy. Because she's already a...

    Hey guys! I'm worried about my 3 year old hedgehog, Phoebe. She started losing quills, hair and shedding skin flakes like crazy about two months ago. I gave her a sulfur lime bath (worked previously in the past) but it didn't help her. After a couple oatmeal baths and oils I took her to her vet...

    Calling all hedgehog parents who have had a hedgehog who underwent surgery!!! Harper is a 3 year old healthy hedgehog. It was recently discovered that she has a tumor under her left armpit. I chose not to have the cells sent off as I would not be able to afford any type of cancer treatment. My...

    Quilliam seems to have a pink bump under his chin that I just noticed today. My first thought was that it could be a mole because it kind of does look like there is a long hair coming from it that doesn't match his other hair on his under side. But also it could be something worse? He's still a...

    Hi, Recently I have noticed my four or five year old hedgie, Penny, has developed a lump on her neck. She was still eating and drinking. We took her to the vet two days ago and they said it might be an abscess that they could drain if the swelling goes down. They gave her steroids and...

    Hey everyone! So my hedgehog, Hog (original, I know), is 5 1/2 years old. I noticed about two weeks ago that she was kicking her shavings EVERYWHERE, especially into her water dish multiple times a day, but just figured that she was being a brat. After a few days I realized that she was falling...

    Hi folks. I've been a lurker here for about two or three years. Here's my issue. I took my little boy (turned 4 in August) to the vet because his penile sheath looked irritated. Vet sedated him to get a skin scraping (which his usual vet never did, but it is what it is), and while he was...
