Post quilling tips here!

All our hedgies quill and we want them to feel better right! I've seen tips here and there, but not in one spot and I wanna help my itching cranky Oreo, so post you quilling help tips here.

I give him a warm bath with a drop or two of olive oil to soften his tender skin. What else can i do?

I use Colloidal oatmeal in their bath as a natural way to moisturize their skin. They seem to enjoy it, and it's available almost anywhere.

or you can use avenno oatmeal bath, it makes people feel better if you have itches or chicken poxs and it works for hedgies also.

Actually that's the exact same thing. I just didn't say Aveeno because when you buy that you are paying extra for the brand name, when there is no name brand colloidal oatmeal for much cheaper.

How is the quilling going? I use the aveeno since I can find it the easiest. I also use Vit. E oil on my hedgehogs.

I like Aveeno bath, and it seems to sooth the hedgehogs.

Aveeno is the most popular treatment here for quilling or even itchy dry skin.

Q: I just got my hedgehog and may I ask, what is quilling and when does it occur? Is it something I have to worry about? I hope people are still visiting this post.
