Skin peeling?

Hello peeps,

I recently adopted my hedgehog a few days ago. She is using aspen shaving. I noticed that the bridge of her nose is peeling. Is this normal? Should I be worried about the skin?

Sounds like she could have dry skin.
That can be helped with a Aveeno Oatmeal bath with a flax see rinse.

Although with her being on wood shavings there is a possibility of her getting mites. So if the bath doesn't help you mite want to see a vet and get some Revolution. Of course it wouldn't hurt to treat her for mites just as a precaution.

I hope this helps.
Good luck and congratulations on your little one! :)
