Okay so my hedgehog has been acting like hes been doing (removed by moderator) lately!

He has been like !!!! when i go to take him out he doesnt just huff and puff anymore he JOLTS...ALOT! And even when i go to pet him he still does it and WILL NOT STOP, this has been going on for 2 days straight now and I am probably going to bring him to the vet tomorrow to see what his problem is...

He also BOLTS all over the place, I let him roam free today hoping he would spend some of his energy around the room instead of just at me and he was ALL over the place, finally he got himself stuck behind my computer/computer desk, I had to move the whole darn thing to grab him out, AND i have had to use gloves again after not having to use them for the past 2 weeks hes been suck a pain over the past 2 days....

Well then I suggest two things:

No gloves, ever. Use a blanket/towel (watch their nails in the towel as they can get caught).

Get a wheel for your hedgehog.
Stephanie, he has stated clearly twice that he HAS a wheel for his hedgehog and has HAD one the entire time.

While the gloves are not the ideal choice he has stated that he has used them before with the hedgie, so they are not the key reason why the hedgie is freaking out.

HixVAC, I have been thinking about this a lot and while I know I am not a hedgehog expert in the least, I have to wonder if this freaky behavior is a result of a neurological injury that your hedgie might have sustained during one of the times he was dropped or the kicking accident that happened in the past weeks.a (This is NOT to make you feel bad IT is just the immediate thought that came to mind when I read your post a day or so ago.) I really think you should get him to the vet ASAP just in case. OR it could just be something poking him like LG said.
