    Hello! I’ve been using a tiny bowl from my kitchen as a water bowl for the longest time. Today I finally went out and bought my hedgie, Cassie, a real water bowl! It has a rim that kind of curves and I want to make sure she can access the water easily. Thanks!

    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...

    My hedgie is having trouble pooping when i give him footbaths. I never really see him poop in his cage so I'm not sure if it's just the water or what. He tries to poop in the water and usually he can do it with no problem but recently I noticed it takes him a couple minutes to get it out...
  6. Cages
    I have this cage: https://www.amazon.ca/Living-World-Deluxe-Habitat-X-Large/dp/B007BNE1YA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1475236143&sr=8-2&keywords=hedgehog+cage Due to the size of the cage, the rails for the water bottle make the water bottle sit up very high, and I read that the optimum height for...

    Hi, I'm a new hedgie Mommy. I've had my baby for two weeks now, so I'm trying to make sure I'm doing the best I can. It's been a few days since I've seen pee in the cage (fleece liners) and I'm wondering if she's dehydrated. I'm using a water dish I try to keep completely full at all times. Is...
  8. Teeth & mouth issues
    Hello! First of all, I am very sorry that this post is probably in the wrong place, however I was not certain where to start a thread. Basically, is there such thing as kidney disease in hedgehogs? Luis is 5 years old and drinks a ton of water sometimes. I know that in dogs and cats this is a...
  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Firstly, I am ashamed that I am the worst hedgehog mommy there was. Taz is a year old, still eats kitten food- Royal Canin Spayed and Neutered. This week he stopped eating and started flipping over his food bowl into his water bowl rather than eating it (his water bowl is too heavy for him to...

    Hi everyone! I got my hedgie Watson around a month ago. He's a year old, I adopted him from a friend. After reading around the forums here, I decided to use a bin, fleece and corduroy liners and water bowl. My problem is it's EXTREEEEMELY hot (google weather says it's 90 deg) right now in the...

    Hi again! Just wondering, how do you know when your hedgehog wants food/water? Does it make a sound, or rolls in a ball or something? Kinda ASAP but I'm not rushing you. Thanks for your help :)

  15. Liners & Cage bedding
    I'm relatively new to owning a Hedgie so I would just like to get a clear view on a few things. How often should I change the bedding, and how often should I give him a bath and clip his nails? I also read somewhere that iams cat food is only considered mediocre compared to the other high...

    Hi everyone. Nico has dramatically decreased her water intake over the last few days. She's still peeing like normal, but it got me to wondering how much water a hedgehog should be consuming each night. She has a small water bowl (I can't for the life of me think of the dimensions and I'm...

    Hi, all! So I originally had a bottle for Loretta, but noticed she started biting it so I switched to a bowl. I feel like she drinks more out of the bowl and isn't risking her teeth, which is great, but she dirties it so quickly (usually stepping in it with dirty feet or somehow dipping fleece...

    I'm getting a new hedgie soon and want to make sure the care I provide her is the best I can give. I was curious whether a water bottle or a dish is better? I have read so many opinions on each. I read that hedgehogs tilt their heads when drinking from a bottle and that's bad for them. But I...
