I'm looking into buying a hedgehog and I was wondering, about how much are their vet bills? (an estimate) also, do they need check ups, vaccines, etc.? Thanks!
Finding out the vet's experience is important rather than a simple 'yes we treat hedgehogs.' The first vet I went to 'treated' hedgehogs. I learned he had some basic understanding but was clearly uncomfortable around them. My second vet had more experience but his range of knowledge was still not satisfactory to me. My third though is dang on & a full exotic vet.hedgielover said:I think it was already suggested to get quotes from your local vets. Also ask about the hedgehogs they see and the other exotics or small animals they see this will give you an idea of how much experience they actually have. Based on this and the prices you can choose a vet.
No they don't get rabies shots. There are no vaccinations for hedgehogs.tie-dye hedgie said:So they don't even get rabies vaccinations? Sorry this is news to me.
