I've had my hedgehog since Mid-December of '09, and he's the sweetest. Since I got him I've noticed that he always kind of just limps on the right hind leg. Or, it just drags along. I bathed him, and noticed a sort of lump over in that general area of the leg. I took him over to the pet store where we got him and they said that it might just be a little sprain or something from the move. It sounded reasonable so I just went with that. A bit after it didn't get any better so I went back and they said to check for quills that got stuck in the leg or the bump area. He didn't have anything like that. A few days later, I noticed there was blood on his quills, so I went back to the pet store and the guy who sold it to us was checking him out, and he said it was a cut, he then squeezed it and blood and pus came out. The bump looked smaller afterwards. I took him home and put some hydrogen peroxide on the cut. It's been a few days, and he's climbing and stuff, but when I took him out today, his cut smelled awful, I then gave him a bath and he's just relaxing now all bundled up. The bump is still there, and I can still see the cut. Just asking for anything that can help me out at this point. I'll try and snap a shot of it, so it can be seen what I'm talking about.
