Hibernation?
 
My hedgehog has been eating less over the past few days but i didn't think much of it because sometimes she gets lazy and doesn't run for a few days and in turn will eat less. I left home overnight and had my dad feed her and give her water. When i arrived back home today i saw she hadn't eaten or drank any water at all. I went to wake her up and her response was very minimal, slight closing reflex and very soft huffing. She hasn't unballed since i've been trying to warm her and its been an hour. I do think her cage got too cold and hibernation seems likely to me. My question is, other than taking her to the vet as soon as i can, what can i do for her?

All you can do is keep slowly warming her against your body and if she doesn't improve in the next hour I would be heading to the nearest vet.

Do you have a heating set up for the cage?

Warming and taking to vet, yes... Hope, your kid will be fine.
