  1. WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome)
    (I don’t think this is wobbly hedgehog syndrome but I had no idea where else to post this. This just seemed the closest.) Hey guys, I was wondering if anybody had any clue what is going on with Dean: Every two or three months or so (this is not a super common occurrence) he will have what I...
  2. Feet and legs
    My little guy Henny LOVES running on his wheel. He also finds it convenient to use the restroom on the wheel which means I tend to give him foot baths often. I make sure his nails are looking good during the baths. I noticed last night that on one foot it seemed as if he had just one big nail...
  3. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So I wanted to post because I am concerned that I do not know enough about the care and maintenance of my hedgie. I clean his cage daily, refill his food bowl daily, clean and refill his water as well. But things like Mites and stuff I do not know much about. Any general advice on anything I...
  4. Skin
    Okay so this is my first time posting. I have a one year old albino hedgie named Snowball. About 5 months ago she started developing sores around her mouth and on all four of her paws. I took her to a vet and he had never actually seen a hedgehog, despite what the receptionist told me on the...
  5. Respiratory Infections
    I just got my hedgehog a few days ago and I LOVE HER SO SO SO MUCH! I am of course a paranoid hedgehog mother I feel like. She has been eating and drinking a lot of water and she was really active. However, last night, she started acting different. She still ate and drank, but instead of running...

    Is this normal? I'm really freaked out guys- Help. I got Kai about a month ago, and just today i noticed this huge pink spot right behind her ear (not the reverse Mohawk) with no fur on it. The other ear has a small bald spot, but this ear it is HUGE. when she bald up it is clearly visible and...
  7. Respiratory Infections
    I've had Potroast for almost 3 years now and I've never had a single health issue with him, he's been as healthy and happy as can be. But about a week ago, he started making these weird breathing sounds and they have continued until now. I cannot afford to take him to the vet unless I know for...
  8. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So maybe I am overreacting but I'm sad and worried. After 7+ years of wanting one I finally got Miss Shay over the weekend. She's 2 and her previous owners said she's never bit. The night I took her home she bit me and broke the skin, I was surprised but realized it was one the third step in...
  9. General Questions
    Hi Everyone, I did a ton of research before I decided to get a hedgehog. I spent over 2 years reading everything I can about how they act and what they need to eat and what stuff I need to get for him to be happy. However, I've had my hedgehog for almost a year and he is still the same as when...
  10. General Questions
    So I just adopted a female hedgehog from a girl last night. Today I decided to give my hedgie a bath and cut her toenails, I was having difficulty cutting them, but I had her wrapped in a towel kind of and I cut her first foot fine. I was going to go to do another foot when I noticed her front...
  11. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    A little more than a week ago my hedgie Linus, who has always been a cuddly sleepy guy, suddenly had a total personality change and became very anxious and hyperactive. I'm at my wits end and getting a little nervous. When I take him out and try to cuddle like usual, he'll climb off the bed or...
  12. Feet and legs
    On Saturday I put my hedgie girls in the tub so I could clean their cage and when I came back I noticed Olive was dragging her rear left foot. It was behind her and pointed upwards. I quickly finished bathing and started calling vets around town (I just moved here and haven't found a main vet...
  13. General Questions
    My Hedgehog Brock is almost 5-6 yrs old now, he has gone through gum growth removal and now 1 month ago he was treated for possibility for mites and staph infection. So he's doing fine now, but recently he's been chirping alot, so i've gotten worried since its while he sleeps (snoring maybe?)...
  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi all. So I've had Emma (my Hedgie) for almost a week. I understand this is a difficult time for her, in that she is still adjusting, however I am somewhat concerned. Although she hasn't gone on a hunger strike or anything, she does seem to be acting abnormally from the first couple days. The...
  15. Hibernation
    Hello! I've had my hedgehog Rose for nearly 3 years now, not once has she attempted to hibernate until last Saturday (two days ago). I held her close to me while she warmed up and she appeared to be doing fine up until today. I tried to play with her, but she's acting very strange now. She'll...

  17. Breeding & Babies Help
    So my hedgehog Lola had babies almost two weeks ago( 12 days to be exact) and so far i think things are going well. She's eating and drinking a lot and really doesn't spend too much time outside of the cage (i would say about an hour or two a day but i cant be sure) She herself seems healthy as...
  18. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I've had my hedgie Moki for about a week. Three days ago, I started laying out towels and letting him run around, cuddle, and play with his toys every night. Ever since then, I've been waking up to a clean wheel. (there was never very much poop on the wheel but there was enough to tell me he had...

    So my dad was playing with Venera tonight and she starting licking his fingers and anointing. I didn't even think that he probably had the oil on his hands but turns out he did. It wasn't wet, it had dried, but I am still really worried about Venera. What do I do?
  20. Quills
    Hi, I'm a new hedgehog owner and got turbo a few weeks ago, I was told he is roughly a year old. After settling in well I have recently noticed he isn't being as sociable as he was a couple weeks back, although he's always been a bit of a grump... instead of running around my room for ages he...
