I have a hedgehog that doesn't ball up when you clip his nails but rather squirms because he wants to run around. So last night I was clipping his toes and I think I may have cut too close and he was bleeding from one of his toes. I know I didn't get his entire toe because there is still nail left. It stopped bleeding in a couple of minutes and he was walking like nothing even happened the whole time. Should I be concerned or will it be okay?

It sounds like you just cut the quick, which happens to everyone at one time or another. As long as it's not bleeding anymore, it will heal up and be fine. :)

I've done this on accident once since my hedge is such a squirmer. If it happens again just dampen a bit of flour and smear that over her toe.

One other time I thought I had clipped her toenail WAY too short because there was blood all over her foot. Turns out I had clipped my own finger and was so nervous about cutting her I didn't notice. :roll:
