When a hedgehog poops on you, it can feel like a nightmare.
But don’t panic.
In fact, it’s not.
Hedgehogs can recover from pooping in a matter of days.
And while they may not feel better, they can be far more relaxed and less stressed than a dog.
Here’s how to make them feel at ease.
Use your pet’s name, breed, and health.
While it’s normal to have concerns about your hedgehog’s health, it doesn’t mean you should ignore them.
There are ways to treat and prevent health issues.
For instance, a hedgehogs urine can cause kidney damage.
If your pet has kidney problems, you can use a urine analyzer to check for the cause.
Also, if your hedgehigs urination has been a problem, it may be time to take him to the vet.
You can also take the vet’s advice and give him some regular exercise and water breaks.
If you do choose to go to the doctor, make sure you don’t overdo it.
Many doctors will tell you that they are only able to diagnose certain conditions with a test, but they may need to perform an additional test.
The vet will ask for a history and physical examination.
It’s important to ask how long the problem has been going on and how often it happens.
The answer to that will be the most important factor in determining whether you should go to your vet.
Get some help.
Many hedgehog owners have been treated for their hedgehog issues by others in their community.
If the vet thinks you’re suffering from a health issue, it might be time for a new treatment plan.
For example, it could be possible to have your pet undergo a kidney transplant.
Another option is to use a kidney-specific supplement that has been proven to help reduce the amount of urinating that your pet needs to deal with a problem.
It can also be helpful to get your pet tested for kidney disease and/or kidney cancer.
There’s also a test that tests for antibodies in the urine.
This is particularly helpful if your pet is on dialysis or is at risk for kidney problems.
If they’re sick and the test results show a high level of antibodies, it means that your hedgehound is at higher risk for a serious disease.
And if the test shows no signs of kidney disease, it indicates that your dog is doing fine.
You may also want to ask your veterinarian if they can use the medication that they’re prescribing for your hedge, like digoxin, to help you reduce urination.
Give your hedge a bath.
A hedgehog should never have to spend time in a bath because it’ll make them uncomfortable.
While you can’t get rid of your hedge as quickly as a dog, there are some things you can do to ease their discomfort.
For starters, try to avoid using their litter box, where they spend most of their time.
They’ll also spend a lot of time chasing other hedgehorses around the yard, and may need extra grooming if they don’t get enough exercise.
They should also be able to climb on your lap and lie on it.
Some hedgehoms will be able climb on top of your sofa.
Make sure that your hedhog has enough room to stand upright without falling over.
Give them some love.
For some hedgehoes, the smell of their poop can make them very stressed and scared.
You don’t have to give them all the love you can, but it helps to let them know how much you appreciate them.
For an example, if you’re a pet owner who spends a lot time with your hedgehy, you may find that you need to get rid in order to ease the stress.
If that’s the case, ask them to take a walk with you.
You’ll feel much calmer when you’re with your dog.
If it’s a short walk, they’ll be able relax and feel comfortable.
If there’s a long walk, be sure to let your hedge dog have plenty of space to stretch and play.
If an animal can’t play, they may have to be placed on a leash.
If a hedgehy has to be put on a harness, make it long enough so that it’s no longer able to walk with the dog on its back.
Make it easy for your dog to get around, too.
You might want to place a small piece of paper or some kind of barrier around their neck.
If their hair is long, put it in a ponytail or braided, to keep it from getting tangled up.
If these steps aren’t working, you should contact your vet or local animal shelter.
