The hedgehog community has noted a large number of jaw tumors among our pet hedgehogs. With the help of grant funds and the generosity of our donors, we hope to begin to understand the causes of this disease. If you have lost a hedgehog to jaw tumors, or if you have a hedgehog currently living with tumors, please take a moment to fill out the questionnaire below.
This research may help us determine if jaw tumors are dietary, hereditary, viral, hygienic or caused by some other factor. Your input is valuable! This is an ongoing study and information from the past as well as into the future will add to our understanding. Pathology reports and necropsies will also help us to understand this disease better. Thank you for your help!
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. The information you
provide may help us to identify the cause of so many jaw tumors among our pet
hedgehogs. Feel free to add additional Comments and/or Notes to the Comments / Notes field near the bottom of this online form.
If a necropsy and/or pathology were done, please submit a copy to: Vicki
