Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings I think my hedgie might have a cold?! Reply To: I think my hedgie might have a cold?!


I agree, I had one that was coughing whilst in his hedgehog box. I had read they can cough if in a dirty box, but it was getting worse and I kept hearing him a lot during the day cough. I sent a sound clip of it to a local hedgehog carer who confirmed it was most likely lung worm. Sounds like a smokers cough!
