My hedgehog is about 8 weeks old and I found a few quills lying around the bed after I put him away. Then I took him out again that night and I found a few more. Is he quilling? Also, if he is quilling is there something I can do to make him feel better (I heard that it hurt them).

Also, there is the possibility of mites.
He does have flaky dry skin and someone told me if it was flaky he has mites and I did get him from a pet store. So what do I do if he has mites? and why would he be losing quills? This morning when I took him out I found 7 quills. Will he get very sick with mites? He is still getting used to me, but I will buy Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment.
Yeah so i doubt he has mites cause he isn't scratching and his flaky skin isn't moving, so I will buy that Aveeno stuff and I will buy flax seed oil. :)
ok thanx. i put the flax seed oil in his food yesterday. And I will put it again wednesday. And I am going to give him a bath on wednesday as well, so I think I am good. :)
