Hedgehog has probably scurried off somewhere and will be fine they are always being picked up. If he was all rolled up he should be fine.

He and you won't catch fleas, most hedgehog fleas are host specific and need the hedgehog.

Something to look out for though are prickles in Wiley's gums, make sure he does not have any splinters still in him, looking right up at the top of his teeth all round. If there are any pin pricks make sure they are not bleeding - mouth heals very quickly so you should find there are no signs today. Also check his muzle area as he may have been prodding before picking up the hedgehog.

If the hedgehog managed to walk away the. I would imagine it's OK? They are very well protected when they go into a ball but on the downside they are renowned for being covered in fleas. However hedgehog fleas won't live on the dogs so you should be OK

Awwww bless them both. Rocco did this once and although he had a few little spike fits on his muzzle, both hedgehog and pooch were fine.

As mentioned just checked his gums.
