Ouick Tip #1

Wet, mushy, and discolored stools are not normal. Wait 24 hours after you first see the unusual stool and if it is continuing, then contact your vet.

Before getting a hedgehog…

What to consider before getting a pet hedgehog:

  • Will I be able to provide it high quality food?
  • Do I have enough room for a cage? (3 square ft. should be the minimum size for a hedgehog)
  • Will I be able to spend time with it everyday and take it out of the cage?
  • Will I have a vet that I am ready to call in case of an emergency?
  • Will the hedgehog be harm-free in its living conditions?
  • Are hedgehogs legal in my state or are there restrictions to having this exotic pet? If your state has restrictions please look into it before purchasing a hedgehog! (Arizona– restrictions, California– illegal, Georgia– illegal,Hawaii– illegal,Pennsylvania– illegal)
  • Can I provide all of the supplies a hedgehog needs?
  • Will I be able to keep the hedgehog warm at all times? (temperature should be between 73-80 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Will I be able to properly clean the hedgehog and the cage when necessary?
  • Should I buy my hedgehog from a breeder or pet shop?
