Is your hedgie a total drama-hog when it comes to baths? Do they act like you’re trying to drown them every time you bring out the suds?
Most hedgies are fine with getting a bath every once in a while, but if your hedgie acts like the End Is Nigh every time they so much as feel a single drop of water, we have some tips that could help them feel less prickly about bubble time!
- Bathe your hedgie in a kitchen sink to give them better footing. They might feel calmer if they aren't slipping and sliding all over the place.
- Fill the sink with about an inch of warm soapy water and let them explore for a minute or two to acclimate your hedgie to bath time.
- Use a small measuring cup to gently pour water over their back since some hedgies can get nervous under a strong stream of water.
- Make sure to stay away from their eyes and ears.
- Use Quill Chill 45 minutes to an hour before bath time to help relax your hedgie.
Giving your hedgie a bath is important for their health, even when they’d rather be doing anything else. We hope these tips will help your hedgie have less anxiety around baths!
