I was able to collect a urine sample a while back by putting Herisson on a piece of waxed paper on top of a blanket and funneling it into the test tube.

Today I washed his litter-box with Ivory soap (NOT anti-bacterial) and put him in it to pee. He was kind enough to leave a deposit and I syringed it up and put it into a test tube. I took it to my vet right away.

I was greeted with: "OMG I said if you could get a urine sample from a hedgehog I would give you a sticker and a cookie." by a girl at the front desk. My vets response was "Amazing!".

Just sharing my technique. :mrgreen:

That's a smart way to do it and would be about as clean a sample as it would be possible to get. Good thinking! :D

Nice job. Hadn't thought of the syringe idea before.

Did you get a sticker and a cookie?
