I have three hoglets that r 4 weeks old and was wanting to know if hoglets need to be vaccinated like puppies?If so what kind?
I thought so too..Had someone ask me and since i did not know for sure i knew yall hedgie lovers would give me the right answer Thanks LarryTLilysmommy said:As far as I know, hedgehogs don't need any kind of vaccines at any point in their life. They're pretty hardy creatures.
Not true. As a mammal, they can contract Rabies if exposed. They can also contract leptospirosis, a type of distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and lyme disease, all of which have vaccines in other species, none of which have vaccines for hedgehogs.Lilysmommy said:Well, they really don't have any illnesses that could be prevented with vaccines..
