    Just returned home from a trip to find this sweet girl leaning her head to one side. She only leans it to the left side and seems to be walking otherwise normally. Inner ear infection or the beginning of WHS? Video links attached Video 1 Video 2
  2. Hedgehog Health FAQs and Important Topics
    I just recently adopted a new hedgie and I’m noticing that while we are cuddling he is totally fine but when I put him in his cage and he walks around for a little, he shakes and stretches his back legs out and then will lean to one side and spin around. 😥 One time he wanted to eat some food and...

    So my boy hog, 3.5 years old, about 7 months ago started dragging his left hind leg. He has a two story cage so I thought he had fallen or something. A vet didn’t notice any breaks or anything. Just recently, I noticed he is now dragging both his back legs. And he won’t stand on his feet (they...
  4. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi everyone, I joined this site after many tries and fails to make an account but I finally got it! (sorry if this thread has any grammar mistakes or is just all over the place, I'm very stressed right now and I just want to get my hedgehog's story out there) I have a hedgehog named Piper who's...

    I lost my other hedgie last week, I cannot go thru the heartache (again, still, omg). ThumbTack, running on wheel at 10:15pm, looks fine...Not much movement after that, a touch to eat at 1:20am... Tack is a day sleeper all the way, so didnt worry, and didnt know about the lack of movement...
  6. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi and thank you for letting me post, I'm hoping to get some advice. Sniffy, our 4 1/2 year old hedgie hasn't used his wheel in a couple of weeks and starting about a week ago can't really walk, his legs seem really weak. He more crawls or drags himself and falls over to one side. I have to...
  7. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Can anyone help me? I have no idea what's going on with him. He's just over a year old. And he can barely walk. He will no longer eat dried food, and even the food I do feed him, has to be put right next to him or hand fed. He falls to the side occasionall, and he just won't get back up. I also...
  8. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    I have a albino hedgie named Jawn and recently he was walking funny on his left hind leg. My dad described the motion as "knuckling". Anyways I had read so many horror stories online about WHS we rushed him to a special small pets vet and she diagnosed him with WHS. I was devastated, Jawn is my...
  9. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hello everyone, Unforunately, my sweet darling little boy took a sudden and major turn for the worse. Within a day, he has become unable to move with the exception of one rear leg and his neck/head. He didn't have any issues prior to this and I'm heart broken. I don't understand how he could be...
  10. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hello everyone! I have a 2 1/2 old Hedgehog named Miko and he's my pride and joy! Today, literally only today, he was acting slightly off when I went to clean his cage. I had sewn felt pouches for him to sleep in and he's used them since he was a baby, and it's common for him to get 'upset'...
  11. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hello, everyone. I used to have an account here when I first got my hedgehog nearly 4 years ago, and it really saddens me to have to come back now as our time together ends. Unfortunately, my hedgehog's quality of life diminished quickly starting a few weeks ago. She stopped running on her...

    This is going to be a bit long, but I will try to get to the point quickly. I have a 2 year old male hedgehog that was recued 6 months ago. He is pretty feisty as not was worked with very much before. He eats what they told me to feed him: dry cat food, wet cat food, water, and on my own I...

    Hey everyone! So my hedgehog, Hog (original, I know), is 5 1/2 years old. I noticed about two weeks ago that she was kicking her shavings EVERYWHERE, especially into her water dish multiple times a day, but just figured that she was being a brat. After a few days I realized that she was falling...
  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So Nala is just 2 months and 2 weeks right now and I've only had her for a week. She's pretty much grumpy most of the time while inside her bin during the day but when I take her outside to bond, she'd be running around and doesn't like being held and just likes to run. I usually just put her...

    Hello, My Hedgehog is around 4 years old. He has suddenly stopped eating his regular food. He normally eats kitten food as recommended, but the only thing I could get him to eat in the past three days is some meal worms. I've tried cut up strawberries and carrots, but he won't eat either. He...
  16. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi Everyone, I have a hedgehog who is somewhere between 4 and 5 years old, probably closer to 5 than 4. He has been a healthy boy most of the time I have had him (rescued him around 2 years). He had one outbreak of mites but we got that fixed with a vet visit and some meds. He's not super...
  17. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    Hi everyone. I've been using hedgehog central to care for my year old baby Smithers since I got him. All of your threads have been my main education on the subject of my hedgie. Smithers has WHS, a tumor on his stomach, and a lung that does not work. My vet has told me that putting my baby down...
  18. Respiratory Infections
    I'm starting to panic. Luis has been off for a few days, but today he seemed to take a turn for the worst. So he had been very tired and lethargic for a week or so. I figured that it was because he had surgery not long ago and was recovering. I wasn't seeing him come out of his hide for food...
  19. Hibernation
    Hi, I usually go to school during the week and come home on Thursdays and I noticed that my hedgehog's food was still full. My mom and sister usually take care of him and keep his food and water filled while I am gone and I took him out to clip his nails and I noticed he was acting strange...
