  1. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    I've owned 4 hedgehogs and Durin is the first one that I lost to WHS. Now that he's gone I'm leaving his record here just in case someone is googling the disease and needs some guidance. First off: WOBBLY HEDGEHOG IS A TERRIBLE NAME FOR THIS DISEASE WHO CAME UP WITH THAT??? Hedgehogs wobble...

    So, a week ago, I noticed that my hedgehog had his right leg bone kind of sticking upwards whenever he lays down. My mom thought he was compensating for his other side because he has a large cyst (which is non-cancerous, according to my vet) on the left side of his body. I tried to help him by...
  3. General Questions
    This breaks my heart to write this but I am concerned my baby girl might have wobbly hedgehog syndrome and want as much input as I can get. She has been perfectly normal and fine but she has started to not open her eyes and does stuff around her cage with her eyes closed, she eats with her eyes...
  4. 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...

  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My hedgehog is 5 and a half years old. She appears to look physically ok, although she may be exhibiting some signs of Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome. But she is suddenly up during the day time. She will move around her cage a bit and drink lots of water. Then she will lay outside of her igloo and...
  9. 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...

    Hi, I'm a new member and this is my first post - but for the past year this forum has really helped me to learn about chip (our hedgie) and has been a really amazing resource for me. Please help me! Chip is my boyfriends hedgehog, but i am definitely his main caregiver. He is about four...

    Hello, I have a 2yr old hedgehog named Hayley (born March 21, 2012). She has been a great little girl, very social and sweet. My house stays from 74-77 degrees. I live in South Florida and we rarely have any cold snaps, especially since all this has started. She always has a t-shirt or...
  12. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    I noticed a while ago my hedgehog playing with his tubes he would fall over. I thought it was just because of the paper towel tubes because thats the only time i saw him fall. I clippee mclovins nsils and one day cut one too short. Lately i have seen him fall or stumble a few times. This past...
  13. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    I have a male albino hedgehog named Little John. He was a rescue hedgie (we got him from someone who didn't/couldn't take care of him.) We think he is around 4-5 years old, but we aren't able to know 100% since the previous owner couldn't tell us a lot about him. Over the weekend (last week)...
