Exotic Pet of the Week
There’s no denying it–baby hedgehogs are the cutest thing ever! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting baby Ashley, a hedgehog adopted from Hedgehog Valley. It’s always a good idea to bring any new pet into the vet for its first exam. It’s a chance to make sure you have the cage set up correctly, you’re feeding it the right amount and kind of food, and help answer any questions you may have. Don’t rely on pet store staff to answer all your questions (or give you correct information). A veterinarian who is familiar with the particular species you have is your best ally. We love seeing exotics–those non-typical pets–like hedgehogs!
