Hedgehogs: My hedgehog has a strange odor, odor, smell
odor, smell, bacterial or fungal infection: A barn-type smell? I m not sure exactly what you mean. Does your hedgie smell like grain, or is it more of a horse/cow poop nasty smell? If the latter, then I would suspect some kind of bacterial or fungal infection. Take a close look (and sniff) at...

Hedgehogs: losing quills, quilling, mites
quilling, mites, allergies: In my experience, most hedgehogs go through multiple guillings, and many go through significant episodes of quilling up to an age of 8 MONTHS or more. So 18 weeks is not a cause of concern to me. It is also not uncommon for a hedgehog of any age to experience...

Hedgehogs: Strange smell and Foaming at the mouth, cat diet, hedgie
cat diet, hedgie, adult cat: Please take your hedgie to a vet who is familiar with hedgehogs. I m not sure what to think about the foam, but the smell makes me worry your guy has clostridia, a bacterium that is common in HHs, and can be very nasty. Anointing would not last overnight....

Hedgehogs: TATTERED EARS, ear fungus, aloe vera
ear fungus, aloe vera, flaky skin: Hi, Irene: It is not uncommon to see hedgehogs with tattered ears. It doesn t necessarily mean mites; it could just be dry skin. I cleared up a case of tattered ears in a rescue hedgehog just with aloe vera cream. I really think you need to look hard...

oatmeal baths, dry cat food, meal worms: Hi, Megan: The Ivermectin and Revolution would be appropriate if your hedgie had mites, but it doesn t sound like he does. Diet sounds pretty good. I m no vet, but I would guess that he just has a bad case of dry skin. Do you have a humidifier or can...

chicken soup for the cat lover, dry cat food, pet smart: Hi, Daniella: Sorry it took me so long to answer; I ve been moving.

gram scale, well baby, cat litter: Hi, Michelle: I m not sure what could be wrong with your little one, but I do know that hedgehogs prefer a set routine. The changes you made may be very good ones in the long run, but in the short run, might be upsetting your girl a little bit. If...

sleeping too much, irritability, full-spectrum lighting: Hi, Kelsey: I wish I did know what was going on, but the first thing I can think of is an attempt at hibernation, and you re already familiar with his behavior when that is the problem. How does his poop look? It sounds funny that hedgehog people are...

Hedgehogs: i think my hedgie is sick, vomiting, anointing
vomiting, anointing, pooping: William: I can t tell from what you describe whether or not your hedgie is sick. Her behavior may be from the stress of moving to a new home with a new human caretaker. I m not concerned about the copious poop, unless it is abnormal-looking. It should...

termite problems, cause of stress, female blood: Hi, David: If he s just quilling -- which they do until at least six months of age -- he should be getting quills in just about as fast as he s losing them, and you should be able to see quills of a shorter length, where you can see them kind of poking...

Hedgehogs: I think my hedgehog is sick, bacterial infection, respiratory illness
bacterial infection, respiratory illness: Hi, Alison: You need to take your hedgie back to the vet. S/he will be best able to determine what is causing the respiratory symptoms in your little girl. Respiratory illnesses can be quite serious to hedgehogs. Alternatively, you might first call...

male hedgehog w/blood in urine; paying for vet help: Lillian: You are correct in your feeling that this is a problem that requires a veterinary consult (with a hedgehog-familiar vet), and I would say, the sooner the better.

Hedgehogs: Hedgehog not eating..., hedgehog owners, tummy ache
hedgehog owners, tummy ache, sizable piece: Hi, Wesley: It could be something minor, like a simple tummy-ache, or something more serious. A trip to the vet is in order if your hedgehog doesnt eat for 3 days or longer, or rapidly loses weight (like 10-20 grams daily). If the little guy acts...

Hedgehogs: Housing, housing, hedgebag
housing, hedgebag, pigloo: Hi, Tara: Hedgehogs will accept a large variety of items as a bed/burrow -- PVC piping, the half-logs sold by pet stores, plastic pigloos, etc. Given a choice, however, I have found that most hedgies prefer a soft bedroom over a solid one. In my experience,...

Hedgehogs: My hedge fell!, falls
falls: Hi, Melanie: I suspect hedgehogs do have a sense of heights, but their eyesight is not particularly acute (esp. in the daylight, I would guess, since they are nocturnal) and they may not have much visual depth perception, either. Then again, some hedgehogs...

Hedgehogs: hedgehog might be sick, respiratory illnesses, hedgie
respiratory illnesses, hedgie, runny nose: Hi, Cassidy: I would either take your hedgie to the vet s or back to wherever you got her and insist that THEY take her to the vet. Respiratory illnesses in a HH are nothing to fool around with -- HHs can die of them. Good Luck & Hedgie Blessings, ...

Hedgehogs: handfed hedgie baby (3weeks), babies, hoglets

Hedgehogs: hedgie makes a fist, congenital abnormality, veterinary intervention
congenital abnormality, veterinary intervention, characteristic behavior: Hi, Jenny: I ve never seen or heard of a hedgehog with this characteristic/behavior.

Hedgehogs: Is my hedgie sick?, vet asap, pinky finger
vet asap, pinky finger, opportunistic illness: Is there moisture or liquid around the hedgies nostrils?

Hedgehogs: health, hoglet, babies
hoglet, babies: Hi, Amber: It is normal for hoglets to sleep a lot, just as it is normal for human infants to do so. I would guess that the upset stomach might be due to the stress of leaving his mom and litter-mates. Or maybe he wasn t quite weaned. I would not change...

Hedgehogs: A couple questions, boys with boys, aggression
boys with boys, aggression, penis: Hi, Lisa: If Pincushion and Pokey are both males, under no circumstances should you put them together!!! Male hedgehogs have a natural (hormonal) aggression towards other males. If you are able to get Pokey to drop his aggression with you, it might...

Hedgehogs: follow up, blankie, lap time
blankie, lap time, coworker: Okay. Thanks for the info. I would never allow Pincushion and Pokey to be where they can get to each other unless they are VERY closely supervised. You could put their cages where they can see and smell each other and see how they react. I would not house...

Hedgehogs: Hedgehog's condition, bad hind leg

Hedgehogs: is my hedgie sick??, urinary
urinary: Hi, Keyanna: I don t know if Valkrie is sick, but there is a good chance she might be. Hedgies don t usually make noises while peeing unless they are in pain. You have to worry about a problem in the urinary system. I would take her to a vet who knows...

Hedgehogs: ouch.., bald

Hedgehogs: WHS, WHS
WHS: I don t really know the answer to your question, but I have cared for 13 hedgehogs over the last 10 years. Two developed WHS and they were both from breeders, so my statistics are even worse than 10%. You might want to post on one of the Yahoo! HH group...

Hedgehogs: Growing adult quills, green poop, baths
green poop, baths: Hi, Gwen: The green poop is probably unrelated to the fact that Chip is quilling and the fact that you gave him a bath. Warm baths ARE good for quilling. The green poop, however, might indicate a bacterial infection. If it does not clear up within...

Hedgehogs: Health, rolling up

Hedgehogs: mites and revolution, mites, ivermedtin vs revolution

falls, free-ranging, carriers w/ locking lids: Hi, Savanah: I doubt that Rosey was injured by the falls, but they may have scared her and made her more receptive to you as her hedgie-mommy. I would just enjoy that. She is probably looking for reassurance. It may sound weird, but talk to her and...

Hedgehogs: Hedgehog not eating very much, inflammation, pain
inflammation, pain, injury: Hi, Veronica: Sorry for the delay. I am sure sorry to hear that now Marley is having problems with his leg. No, I ve never had a similar case. Is your vet giving him antibiotics? He should probably be on something--if not before, then now that the leg...

Hedgehogs: Something seems wrong with my hedgehog, weakness in the legs, lethargy
weakness in the legs, lethargy, ear infection: Hi, Kayla: There are several things that might cause the symptoms your little one is showing.

Hedgehogs: At a loss..., respiratory illness, poop
respiratory illness, poop, meds: Hi, Kate: I am not a vet, and I m afraid I m mostly at a loss, too. But there are owners far more experienced than I (and maybe even a vet or three) on the Yahoo! groups bulletin boards, hedgehogwelfare and hedgehog_help. Please give them a try. Meanwhile,...

Hedgehogs: He might just be grumpy?, bonding

Hedgehogs: New hedgie won't eat?, cat food mix, food pellets
cat food mix, food pellets, hedgie: Hi, Jessica: It sounds like you are doing fine. I would just keep a close eye on him, as you have been. I laughed about how your rats ate. I used to have a pet rat, so I know what you mean. Hedgies are usually a little more cat-like in their food...

Hedgehogs: FOOD, weight

Hedgehogs: blood in feces, mucus and blood in stool
mucus and blood in stool: Hi, Irene: I would be nervous, like you, if one of my hedgehogs showed blood in his stool. It seems kind of odd that the vet didn t do any more tests, or give you any more idea about what it could be. My immediate fear would be cancer -- but if that were...

Hedgehogs: what could it be?, green poop, dry skin

WHS, failure to eat and drink, illness: Hi, Jaqui: I am so very sorry to hear of the illness of your little one, Thor. I am not a vet, but his symptoms certainly sound to me like Wobbly. Did your vet say why the antibiotics? I would wonder that Thor was not given some Prednisone,...
