weight gain

  1. General Questions
    This is my third year with Lola. I got her as a retired breeder when she was about a year old and I thought she was a large hedgehog at the time, but I was in for a treat. She was about 19oz (538 grams) when I first got her. I didn't weigh her for a while because I didn't think she was getting...

    If anyone has read my previous post with all my worries about Yuki's previous weight problem (http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/12-diet-nutrition/161674-help-changing-food-hedgie-hardly-eats-2.html) you'll understand I'm so happy my little boy has managed to put on weight! :D To summarise...

    How will I know the difference between Crowley gaining weight because she's getting older and bad weight gain as in her getting fat or too much fat and junk food in her diet? I don't have a scale for her yet, but I've got one ordered. Tips for taking her weight? Ways to tell bad weight from...
  7. General Questions
    Hi everyone, My hedgehog is about 7 months old and weighs around 240grams. He used to like to run around on the wheel, but I had to move him into my room since a friend had to stay at my place for a bit. He hasn't come out much of his house since then, probably because of my snoring? lol...
