Aww, our little friends are getting some bad press at the moment! Basically there have been links to Pygmy Hedgehogs and Salmonella Sad

Please SHARE this with other hedgehog owners just as a reminder.

"The CDC has information about how to avoid contracting Salmonella from “pocket pets”. Always wash your hands with soap and water after handling rodents or their cages and bedding. Do not eat food while handling your pet, and do not handle pets in food preparation areas. When buying a pocket pet, don’t pick one that is quiet, tired, has diarrhea, or looks sickly. If one of the animals in the cage has diarrhea or looks sick, the others may have been exposed to an infectious disease."

You would think so but more and more press articles are skipping the obvious and blaming hedgehogs for carrying it - have a larger article to copy and paste on it x

I don't think it is meant to stop you for having one but to educate you against what the press and other people are saying - if you look on the net there are so many negative stores about hedgehogs carrying this - it is all about education that is all x
