my hedgehog (melchior) is a bit over a year old and so far has been fine. But within the last 2 wks or so, has been losing quills. I thought it might be mites? but he is currently on fleece bedding, fleece sleeping area, etc. so I don't know where he would have gotten them from. I don't know how to get it to stop, any suggestions? He eats, sleeps, and runs on the wheel regularly, and drinks the same water we do. He currently resides in my bedroom. Could the light during the day be stressing me out? I need advice! I have also been noticing a bit of shed fur when I clean the cage, should I worry about this, too? There are few exotic vets near me.
