My hedgehog seems to be fine, but she lost 4 quills in the last day. Should I be concerned?

Individual hedgehogs lose varying amounts of quills at a time. If your pet continues to lose quills and sje develops thin areas over her body or bald spots, then a trip to the vet is necessary. If she's eating and acting normally, then just watch her for any changes in diet or behavior. In any case, it might be a good time for a vet examination to make sure she's okay.
