Arrow emergency bath

Ok, so I came home from work today, and found Aprilla playing in her cage, witch was great Untill I got close to her I could smell her She was running in her wheel and it was all full of pee. So I threw her in the sink with some warm water. Do you guys use any hedgie shampoos??? Was just the warm water ok? She took it all better then I thought, but it was are first bath and trust me she needed it. I didn't have any soap for her, I guess I wasn't expecting to need a bath so soon. Thought they were a little smarter then to pee in there wheel and stay in it. It was like it didn't even bother her. Trust me though she needed a bath and a whole cage cleaning. Even though she smelled it was still kinda funny.

Just warm water is ok, but you can also use baby shampoo, puppy or kitten shampoo, or aveeno baby wash. Welcome to hedgehog ownership.

You should use just warm water but every once in a while you could use a baby shampoo.

And beware - they almost always poop while in the bath!

Hahaa Your so right JGawana!! It takes my so long to bath them! empty the sink, fill it up, empty it again!!! haha cuz i like to just refill it rather than just scoop the poop out! But they are always so cute after they have a bath!

She was pretty cute swimming in the sink She took the whole bath really well. Even though I'm pretty sure she was trying to climb out the whole time. But it was nice to get to rub her belly
