  1. Respiratory Infections
    Hi there. I’m a new hedgehog mom of a 7 week old baby and I am trying to distinguish her normal breathing and huffing from wheezing. I’ve been trying to find videos that will show me what it sounds like for a baby to wheeze but I cant find anything. I’m very nervous because I want to do...

    Hello all, I have take care of a hedgie before, but she was much older and I lived in a much warmer environment. Some background info on her: The hedgie I currently have is 3 months old.

    My baby boy Bolt is about 8 months old and I've had him for just over five months! When I first got him, I was living at home and was initially very paranoid about a URI because he seemed to be sneezing and licking his nose a lot. After a few weeks, the sneezing subsided but he kept licking his...

    I'm sorry, this is a long post, but I am in South Korea where (as you will read, if you have time) that I do not have access to decent health care options for my hedgie - any advice will be welcomed! On Friday, 4 May 2018, I came home late and noticed that my little hedgie, Professor Moriarty -...

    Hello all! I'm brand spanking new to the hedgehog world (as in just got 5 week old baby Monty on 3 days ago) so I have lots of new mom anxiety! I've had Monty for a very short time (see above) but I noticed that she makes this weird snuffling sound like she's trying to blow something out of...

    Quilliam has been sneezing more recently. He doesn't seem bothered by it and he still seems like a happy hedgie. He has no other symptoms, he's eating and pooping fine, still has lots of energy for playtime, and if anything he's friendlier and more social than ever. He's about 7 and a half...

    Hello All, I recently noticed that my hedgy has been acting weird the last couple days. Jack is a generally a very healthy active guy. He is 3 and never had any issues. Well we moved to CO 2 years ago. Recently moved into our house that he is in currently. This house stays a little chilly so as...

    Hey all, So I'm the mom of lil Chloe, who I'm guessing is a bit over 2 years old at this point. She's had a URI before, about a year to a year and a half ago, and had crust on her nose and we caught on pretty quickly that she wasn't doing well. Got her on antibiotics and she was back to her...

    If you have not read my previous threads I will summarize my situation for you briefly. I picked up Prim (7 weeks old) from the breeders on Friday, the Sunday previous I picked her out when she was in perfectly good health. Upon arrival at the breeders I herd Prim make some noises that myself...

    Hello! My little guy Riku has just recently stopped using his back right leg. About a month ago he tried going into hibernation and got a little shaky but he went right back to normal after a few adjustments to his lighting and temp. Earlier this week though I noticed he was flopping over on...

    My boy Fidget just turned 3 a week ago and has never had any health problems until almost 2 months ago. He was under the care of my mother at the time and when I came to visit I noticed that his vocalizations sounded different. It didn't seem too bad but I asked her to take him to a vet just...

    Hi, my sister's hedgehog (mentioned in a different thread) has had symptoms of a URI. We are taking her into a vet on Monday, and we were wondering what we can do until then. Thanks.

    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...

    Little Mira is about 4 months old and the past week I noticed her licking her nose very frequently and occasionally doing a little sneeze (about once or twice a day.) To be on the safe side, I took her to the vet. Though the vet said she could see exotic pets, she told me when I got there that...

  17. General Questions
    My girl is 12 weeks old, and has been quilling for about two weeks. When I first noticed how dry her skin was I did some research and tried to give her an oatmeal bath with flaxseed oil in the rinse water to help soften her skin. I'd only had her for a week at that point, but I really wanted to...

    Hi guys, Butters is currently being treated for URI and because it's his first time being sick I just have a few questions. He had a hibernation scare recently and since then I've gotten him a better heating system. Shortly after the hibernation attempt I noticed he was sneezing so I brought...
