    Hey there, I adopted Beau last Friday 1/15/21. He's about 10-11 months old and he's a rescue from a family who wasn't taking care of him. Their story for what happened to Beau is that they didn't know you were supposed to trim their nails, so his back nail grew into his paw and then they cut it...
  2. Bleeding, Female
    On Sunday, Dec 27, my lady Reggie had some blood on the tissue when she peed & pooped while chilling on my lap. I called a vet and was able to get her to see someone on Tuesday, Dec 29. The vet wasn't able to palpate her belly 'cause she balls up, so she gave her some gas to get my Reg to sleep...

    Hi everyone, Long-time lurker here, and I finally have a question (the circumstances, sadly, are not ideal). Our little guy has what is likely a necrotic little toe. He got some hair wrapped around his foot the other night (we noticed in the morning). Thanks to some helpful threads on this...

    If you live in the Boston area and need a vet, do NOT to Cambridge Veterinary Care. They were listed as hedgehog friendly, and when I called they said they see hedgehogs, and since it was close by I thought it would be a great choice. The first time I took my hedgehog there was for a respiratory...

    My hedgie went to the vet because there was blood in his stool, he was very scared there. We got home and since he's been doing this(pic below). I'm not sure if he's scared or it's something else but it's quite worrying especially due to how helpless he looks. That is his potty btw, I put him...

    Hi everyone. My guy hasn't really been eating for the past 3 days, consistently less than 10 pieces of kibble. He is losing quills and has dry skin, I think he's started quilling (he's 10 weeks old) however I can't really tell if he's growing new quills or not. He has dry skin and is extra...

    So I have been to 3 different vets for my girl since I got her (testing out which vet is best) because I thought she was having constipation issues a while back. 2 of the vets did not sedate her for the x-ray, but 1 of them wanted to sedate her. They were a bit shocked when I told them that...

    Beatrix has been losing a lot of quills and hair everyday each time she moves. When I first noticed it I took her to the vet and the vet checked for mites but couldn't see any under the microscope, but still gave me 2 treatments for mites for her anyways. She also gave me an anti-fungal shampoo...

    Hello I currently don't own any hedge hogs but I would like for someone to give me a complete run down of generally accepted hedge hog care requirements before I decide to get one.

So far after handling her, there are no signs of ringworm infection on me but just to make sure. I'm...

    So before I begin I usually change out Obie's water at least every 2 days to prevent mold and stuff from growing in it, that and sometimes her food will fall in there sometimes etc. Well this week I was preoccupied with school and I got a little irresponsible with not changing the water out, (I...

    Tiffany was chilling on my shoulder, as he likes to do, and suddenly decided to start annointing with my earring. He got a little too into it and bit the earring back off before I could stop him. Since he was on my shoulder, I couldn't see if he spit or swallowed it and we were in my bed so...

    Hi all! I'm looking for a good vet in San Antonio. The reason I'm asking on the forum is that I used the hedgehog welfare society listings to find a vet (well, two vets), but I'm not entirely confident in them. My two oldest babies are a couple of months away from their annual check-up, and I...
