    Hi everyone, you can probably tell that I'm new here but I need to upload a thread regarding my hedgehog's WHS that is drastically getting worse and I'd like to upload a video to show her symptoms but a window popped up when I was trying to upload it that said, "Your submission could not be...

  3. Feet and legs
    Minnie is my first hedgehog, I got her a few months ago and she was born in April of this year. She has been acting completely normal, but I noticed a bump on her front right leg a little over a week ago, it is not squishy, but it doesn't feel rock solid. It is probably a little smaller than the...
  4. General Questions
    Hey. My hedgehog doesn't seem to be drinking, or at least not as much as he was a few days ago. I cleaned his cage today and cleaned out his food and water bowls just so everything was fresh, and also his poop was green ish (which i read is a sign of dehydration). I just need someone to tell me...
  5. Breeding & Babies Help
    My eldest hedgie Yue gave birth I think early this morning (they were totally clean and had little spikes). I was checking if she'd eaten cause she had been avoiding her food and when I lifted her sheets to say hi, there were the babies! I have two hedgies, Yue and Tema, and both cages are both...

    Hello, My Hedgehog is around 4 years old. He has suddenly stopped eating his regular food. He normally eats kitten food as recommended, but the only thing I could get him to eat in the past three days is some meal worms. I've tried cut up strawberries and carrots, but he won't eat either. He...

    My dad was coming home from work and spotted this hedgehog hobbling down the road, we've had resident wild hedgehogs living in the garden before, so he must have thought if it was limping and looked unwell, maybe we could help it out (I know this is ethically wrong and taking it out of its...

    My 10 month male hedgehog has a red spot under his left front leg. If he had an armpit, it would be there. I was drying him off from a bath when the spot was first brought to my attention. I had tried to hold him on his back in my hand while holding his front leg out, but to my dismay he just...

  10. Breeding & Babies Help
    I have been wondering what are the symptoms of a hedgehog miscarriage? How long will it last? And what steps can you take to ensure more comfort at this time?

    I just adopted a couple week old hedgehog on the 11th of April, 2015 and he is already having troubles breathing. He continually gets dried boogers covering his nose and has discharge from his eyes. He does not seem too grumpy, yet it is difficult to tell since I have only recently adopted him...
  12. Skin
    Hey everyone, Molly's developed a huge bump behind her left ear and it's got a huge open-wound-semi-scab on it that won't heal because she won't stop scratching. I'm desperate, I live in Mexico City and the ONLY good hedgehog vet is away on vacation right now and I can't reach him. Should I...

    Phoebe (born in sept) has already finished quilling I thought but has been losing a lot more lately, but that could be unrelated to the real issue.... Tonight I noticed several red bumps on her back and I started to touch one but she bit me (sign of pain?) so I wrapped her in her cuddle blanket...
  14. Teeth & mouth issues
    My 3 month old male hedgie, Monty, has peeling skin all over the oppening of his mouth. I checked everything in his cage and everything seems safe. I don't know what could be causing it or what to do. Someone please help!!!
  15. Diet and Nutrition
    Hello all :) This is a last resort as I have run out of options and am not sure what to do next. So my little Sniffles is EXTREMELY picky. When I first got him he was on a Royal Canin Kitten 36 diet. I kept feeding him that until about a month ago and I would also feed him 8 in 1 hedgehog diet...
  16. Quills
    As from my previous behavior post, we have finally found that Clyde has been losing quills! He's about 6.5 weeks old today. We had strict instructions from our breeder that we shouldn't give him a bath until 8 weeks old. He's in very much pain and we aren't sure what to do with him if we can't...

    So I got a four month old hedgehog yesterday, he pooped twice on the way home but he hasn't pooped since, so it's been like a day and a half. The lady said he use to eat iams so I got him a kitten one and an adult one and mixed them together, he eats but not as much as I would like, he probably...
