Sure, wake her up before you leave. Give her a chance to go to the bathroom. However, do not be surprised if she doesn't go and then does go as soon as you are on the road and unable to remove it. I've had a couple that just seemed to like to torture me with a really smelly poo while in a closed car. I think it was payback for telling them they were going to the veterinarian.

I don't think my vets are that close to you.... My current vet is in Williamston MI. I also use one in Howell, MI for backup (they are open on Sundays). They have limited experience with hedgehogs, but I'm comfortable using them. Prior to that, I used a vet clinic in Warren who had 2 very good vets but one moved to the thumb area and I've lost contact with him.

I believe you are on the west side of the state yes? You can look at my website to see if there is one listed near you. (www.mihog.org/vets.phtml). I try to add vets when people send me a recommendation.

My preference for traveling is a hard sided carrier that you can strap into the car seat to prevent it from flying should you have to stop suddenly. However, I have used a variety of things when needed. I guess my next preference would be a small plastic tub with air holes cut in it. Otherwise, folks have used canvas type carriers to travel a hedgehog for short trips. I have even used a canvas tote bag with a piece of vellux lining it to do a quick travel.
