Hedgehogs Increase in Popularity Thanks to Low Costs and Low Maintenance

22nd January, 2015
Millions of pet lovers across the nation wish they could add a furry friend to their homes, but worry they don’t have the necessary time or financial resources to make it work. Enter the hedgehog, an adorable, spiny rodent that is taking the pet world by storm. Despite the fact that six states have laws either banning or restricting hedgehogs being kept as pets, they are seeing an astounding boom in popularity due to the fact that their needs are low, their costs are manageable, and they still have enough personality that they’re fun to take care of. They also have very low odor emissions compared to other rodents, making them ideal for small spaces and obsessively clean pet owners alike. It’s flexibility that brings so many pet lovers into the hedgehog’s corner. Hedgehogs can stay home all day without the need for a walker or pet sitter. They don’t need to be walked or require trips to the park for exercise. And they have simple food needs that are far below that of a more traditional pet. Hedgehogs have become so popular that some pet store owners have had to start a wait list for the animals due to massive local demand. While there’s no official data on hedgehog ownership, sales trends and pet store employees all seem to agree that they are becoming the next big thing in small pets.

EcoEars by Vet Organics fixed our girl's ears in the first couple of days & she was a whole new, happy dog again. THANK YOU Vet Organics!!!
Nikki Wiedmer
Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
