Hi. New owner here. I got a lovely female hedgehog for my birthday, and I've trying to do my best to take care of her, but a week ago, she took a pretty heavy fall. she started nose bleeding and got a contusion on her lower left leg. I was oviously worried, so I tooke hr to the vet, and she said it was fine, that she probably needed some rest. Since she was walking and eating normally, I relaxed a bit. Well, today, after a somewhat casual mouth check, I discovered poor Maiche (that's her name) has her lower front left tooth almost completely gone. I saw no blood or scars, but, you know, she has no tooth! Is there anything I can do to help her?

That picture is absolutely precious! I wish Cloud would sit still for one like that... haha.

I also had a problem with my hedgie's teeth. Cloud is missing one of his 'vampire fangs', but the vet said that it was perfectly fine, and that they eventually lose a few teeth with age. As long as she's eating/drinking normally i don't think you have to worry :)
