What’s wrong with my hedgehog?
My hedgehog has been balled up for several days and now his eyes don’t look right and he’s dragging a hind leg.
Hedgehogs can suffer from tooth infections, eye problems, skin mites, and many other physical problems. It’s very important that yours be examined by a veterinarian that has a background in exotic pets.
Most large cities have veterinarians with these qualifications. You might ask your current veterinarian for a referral. If your current veterinarian doesn’t know of someone with this experience, you can call your local or state veterinary medical association office for a referral.
