Hydrated Hedgies are Healthier and Happier!

  • By Katie McNeal

Hydrated Hedgies are Healthier and Happier!

Breaking news: water is wet, and drinking it is good for everyone!

Most people know that drinking enough water is one of the most important things we can do for our health, but did you know that also applies for our beloved hedgies?

It’s true! Keeping a hedgie hydrated (especially a hoglet that’s still growing) helps their bodies function at peak condition.

Water is important for:
  • temperature regulation
  • nutrition absorption
  • waste removal       

How Can You Tell if Your Hedgehog is Drinking Enough?

Drastic changes in your hedgehog’s water intake can also help alert you to potential health issues. If your hedgie isn’t drinking enough water, it might indicate an issue such as an upset stomach, but if they’re drinking more water than usual, it might be a sign that your hedgehog is developing an illness/disease like cancer or tumors.

Most small animal water bottles or bowls don’t let you keep track of how much water your hedgehog is drinking daily, and are prone to spilling, leaking, and making a mess.

But no need for tears, Hedgehogs and Friends has you covered!

Expert Tip #2:

These might be the world’s best water bottles, but they still require maintenance! Here are some maintenance suggestions for ALL water bottles:

  • The ball bearing at the end of the bottle can get stuck and prevent water flow. Check it every day!
  • Clean the water bottle with a 10% diluted bleach solution once a month.
  • Completely replace the entire water bottle once a year.
