How to Bathe a Hedgehog

Our in-depth step by step video tutorial is in the works. But until then here is a down and dirty list of step for bathing your hedgehog:

  • In a bath tub or sink, get the water going at a warm temperature. If it's too hot or too cold for you to be comfortable, your hedgehog won't be comfortable either
  • Once the water is warm (but not scalding) place your hedgehog under the water stream to get them wet. Try not to get water in your hedgie's eyes
  • Squirt a drop of product in the center of your hedgehog's back
  • Using a toothbrush or other small bristle brush work the product throughout the quills, scrubbing any areas that need special attention
  • Allow your hedgie to walk through the sudsy water
  • Thoroughly rinse your hedgie under the warm water stream
  • Towel dry
  • Now is a good time to trim nails!
