hi, i'm a new hedgie owner, so i'm not familiar with this kind of problem. my hedgie, zane, is about two months old and recently i saw small brown spots on his quills. i thought it was just from the shavings, but the brown spots moved, so i'm concerned. are they mites? so far he's not losing any quills, but i don't want to wait for that to happen for me to start doing something.

please please please help!

Can you post a picture of the brown spots? It might help identify them easier. Or, you can do a Google image search to see if any pictures of mites matches what's on your hedgehog.

here's the picture. i circled the brown spots. they're difficult to see because they're really small.


are there no home remedies for mites just in case? because in our area, there are no vets for hedgehogs :(
