What should i use to bathe my hedgehog?
That stuff is GREAT! We were using just the oatmeal bath, but alas, I'm under the school of thought that if there aren't bubbles/soap involved, then it's not cleaning properly. My hedgies didn't even notice that there was something different in the bath last night.Vortex said:i use Fragrance Free Aveeno baby soothing relief with natural oatmeal
Just to clarify my opinion: They get full blown baths twice a year. I give them a once over with the toothbrush, which came to me highly recommended (as was the Aveeno wash) seeing as they don't get bathed regularly, and then get rinsed off right away and dried off very well. The water is never higher than the tops of their feet and my hedgies are more concerned with figuring out how to get out of bathtub than what's in the bathtub (which is another reason their baths are quick as well as few and far between). I am, however, super super super super cautious and ALWAYS have my eyes on the and at least one hand on them to make sure they don't put their heads anywhere near the water, be it with Aveeno soap or Aveeno oatmeal or just plain water.HedgeMom said:Rarely should a hedgehog need a bath. And definately not a scrubbing with a toothbrush. When you bathe them, you remove the protective oils that keep their skin from drying out. A foot bath when needed is enough.
