Michigan Hedgehog Owners Group

MIHOG was created in order to aid Michigan hedgehog owners with locating care, products, and general information for their pets. I originally created the site after my first hedgehog, Little Momma, passed away at the age of 8 years. I had many problems finding good information about local veterinarians and where to find products for these little guys, and felt that there needed to be a place where others in my area could share information. However, times have changed and products that are hedgehog friendly are more easily found.. The site's purpose has since changed from a listing of veterinarians, breeders & stores that carry hedgehog friendly items, to providing information for general care, diet and housing recommendations.

If you want to contact me or contribute to this web site, please use the link below. I love to hear from fellow Michigan owners, as well as owners from all over.
