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."
