Why your scent matters to your hedgehog

Looking  after a hedgehog involves learning about your pet and taking the time  to meet her needs in ways that will help her thrive. You’ve heard that  you should maintain a consistent scent around your pet. Why is this? 

Your hedgehog uses her senses in different ways than you do and this means that she  will gather different information in order to learn about her  surroundings and the individuals within it. Since hedgehogs tend to not  see very well, they depend on other senses to identify who they are  spending time with. Their sense of smell is a big part of this and  keeping a consistent scent can help her better grasp that it is you she  is interacting with so you can better build a relationship with her. Your local animal hospital Bourne, MA can help you better understand your pet.
