Bleeding ears? That doesn't sound like mites. Unless the bleeding was from scratching. Honestly, I would find a different vet. Hedgehogs should not be given shots for mites. What they're giving is Ivermectin, which has caused deaths in hedgehogs. Mites should only be treated with Revolution which is a topical treatment that is very safe for hedgehogs.

Changing to the fleece was a good move if mites are involved. But these problems just aren't sounding like mites. If there is another vet in your area that will see hedgehogs, I would go and get a second opinion.
