Hedgehog care

Hedgehogs are exotic animals and require extra care. Their lifespan is 4-6 years. With proper nutrition and care, they have been known to live longer. Hedgehogs do not require vaccinations, however a yearly vet checkup is recommended. 

It is very important to keep your hedgehog's environment above 75 degrees. Ideal temperatures are between 74-78 degrees. If your hedgehogs body temperature drops they can go into false hibernation, then their organs shut down, and they will die! Please supply a proper heat source such as a CHE (ceramic heat emitter) 75-100 watt, and a clamp on style lamp. You can find both of them at Petsmart or Amazon. Also, a thermometer inside of their cage is also recommended to keep an eye on your hedgehog's environment temperature. 

Cages - There are lots of options for cages. C & C cages, Midwest guinea pig cage, homemade cages as well are becoming more popular, plastic storage containers (like the one pictured above). I do not recommend wire rabbit cages as the bars are too wide and hedgehogs can squeeze through the bars. I, also do not recommend aquariums of any sort (there is not proper ventilation through it). Multi level homes are not recommended...hedgehogs have very poor eyesight and no depth perception and may fall off of the ramp and get injured. There are a wide variety of bedding that can be used. Pine, aspen, Kaytee clean & cozy, carefresh, flannel/fleece cage liners, fleece cut into strips works nicely too. Please DO NOT use cedar!!! It has toxic oils that are toxic to hedgehogs! Requirements for items to put in your hedgehogs cage: Wheel-11 inch or larger, a hiding place (igloo or my hidey hats or snuggle sacks), water bottle, and food dish. You can give your hedgehog toys such as solid cat toys and balls, small stuffed animals, and other small solid toys.
