I shampoo my hedgehot with Hartz Ultra Guard Rid Fleas & Tick for dogs shampoo with Oatmeal it's supposed to kill fleas and ticks, the breeder i got it from uses it for all her hedgehogs and suggested it. Will this also prevent Fleas and Ticks as well as Mites and if so, If she got any of these will the shampoo alone help get rid of them or should i use something else? I'm not even sure if her scratching is just regular scratching and she shed a lot of quills but has stopped and has no irritation on her skin from what i have seen, new quills did come in.

There is no shampoo that will prevent mites. Honestly I wouldn't use that shampoo on my hedgehog. Most dog shampoos are scented to help cover up the doggie smell also if it gets rid of fleas and ticks then it must have some type of chemical in it to kill. I recommend using Avenno baby wash because its scent free and gentle on their skin.
