    Hello. My 2 year old hedgehog gave birth to a 6 hoglet litter on October 11th. One was stillborn and sadly, two died due to lack of nutrition.

    Frisk has a swollen toe. I took him to the vet. He got oral meds twice a day for 7 days and a soap to bathe his foot in. 9 days later, it's still swollen if not a bit bigger. I dont know what to do. I definitely can't afford tests done on him. It doesn't seem to be bothering him much. I'm...

    I am currently taking care of two hedgies: a 1 y/o male called Huxley and a ~8 month old female one called Peebles. I heard the girl squeaking at night around three times? One of which I saw her doing it while peeing. Her beeding has been making it hard for me to distinguish if her pee's...

    My boy King Robert had a lump of goo growing out his back before we lanced and drained it. Of note: the skin was perfect, no dryness, scaling, redness, swelling, literally no indication of something wrong other than the bump.
