Lixit Deco House
Disposable interactive housing for your hedgehog. Stickers are included to use to personalize the house of your pet. All safe and non toxic ingredients.
The snuggle sacks are a great way for your hedgehogs to snuggle in. There’s been times where people see their hedgehogs actually bring the sacks inside their igloos for added warmth. This is also a great way to bond with your hedgehogs when your on your computer or watching TV.
Cuddle Cups are also a great way for bonding outside the cage. You can bring the hedgehog anywhere with you for socialization and cuddle it close to you. You can also leave use it like a hut inside your cage. Hedgehogs love it!
They provide all the comfort of snuggle sacks and beds whilst giving your Critter a roof over its head where they can feel safe and secure, but not completely out of sight thanks to the large entrance.

LW Travel Carrier

It has a comfortable handle for easy carrying and a large access lid with an ergonomically designed lock that keeps your pet securely inside. The carrier also has multiple ventilation slits to ensure excellent air circulation. A small access window at the top of the unit allows you to feed your pet easily.
Oxbow Carnivore Care
Highly digestible protein sources make carnivore care an ideal choice when providing supplementation for carnivores that are not eating due to complications. Base on experience, this is what I feed my rejected babies/handfed babies/adult hedgehogs that got sick and not eating etc. It is always nice to have this as backup if you have a hedgehog that stops eating. This can be used by adding water or goats milk to make it more tastier.
These syringes is what you would use to handfeed your hedgehog if they stopped eating on their own. The soft feeding tube helps move the food easily in their mouth. A video clip down below is shown when I was handfeeding Orion since mom has rejected the litter. Carinivore Care + Goats Milk is what he is being fed on.
The only milk you should be feeding your hedgehog if they stopped eating to add more nutrition to their diet. This is normally paired only with Carnivore Care.
Are canned live and are cooked in the can to lock in flavor, maintain freshness and preserve nutritional value. The cooking process also softens the exoskeleton by breaking down collagen proteins for easier digestion for your pet. They are packaged in their own natural juices and contain no artificial flavors or colors. Hedgehogs go crazy over them. Ideal for most lizards, turtles, fish, birds and small animals. Cans are 1.2 oz.
NIKS Moisturizing Oil
This is a MUST HAVE product for every hedgehog household. It is the only one I find that works so well for hedgehog dry skin. I was blown away with the results. 100% safe for humans and hedgehogs. I am one of the Canadian Distributor for this product.
Niks Organic Foaming Soap
This 1.75oz bottle is a new product that we want to share to everyone as an alternative for the Aveeno Oatmeal Baby Shampoo that most of you use for your hedgehogs. It is organic based foam shampoo and very healthy to the skin. I am one of the Canadian Distributor of this product. Made by Critter Connection in Ohio.
Universal Medicated Shampoo
This Universal Medicated Shampoo is great for hedgehogs who are suffering from quill loss. Soluble Sulfur Formulation provides Antibacterial, Antifungal, and Keratolytic activity. Personally used when hedgehogs get stressed and have fungal infection. This is normally paired with the NIKS Moisturizing Oil. It can take months for new quills to grow in since all the crusts have to fall off first so new skin underneath heals and new quills are able to grow. Keep in mind… the drier the hedgehog skin gets.. the more prone for them to get bacterial & fungal infections.
This nail brush is meant for babies that are going through the quilling stage. Just by brushing their quills, you’d be removing the quills that aren’t falling off on its own. This is often what is causing them pain. After a thorough brushing, you would want to use the bath bombs to sooth their skin for about 5-8 minutes (lukewarm, not warm). Within a day or so, they are much less grumpy and the swelling is reduced in any ingrown quills. In my experience, the ones who have trouble quilling often have dry skin in addition to that.

It totally eliminates the after scent of poo/pee.
