I am about to purchase a hedgie from a local pet store! ( I know alot of you don't support this , but I love her and I think she loves me already too) She has flakey skin. I am pretty sure that it isn't mites ,but is the only way I can be sure a skin scrap. She doesn't seem irritated by her skin. I was wondering what all I can do! By the way her name is going to be Rollitheanne aka Rolli! I have spent the last three days with her in the pet store and she is already sleeping on me and sticking her little legs out while she sleeps. I have never had a hedgie before but I have always liked them. I have done my reading and read alot of the very imformative posts on here! I appreciate any help!
