Default Stressed or Sick

Hey guys Im from England and its just turned 1;30am here so my hedgie Gizmo is wide awake.
The past 3 days me and my boyfriend have been tryin to cut Gizmos nail we have just completed the task at last. But she gets herself in a right state so we do what we can then leave her as we dont want to stress her out too much and then try again the next night. I know its easier to cut them when they in the bath but she hates that to so we dont do it at the same time cause we havent got enough hands. She hates water if she puts her footin her water bowl she goes mad.
After i out her back tonight i have notice that after about 30mins that the poop she had just done is a green tinge to it.
She didnt have any treats last night and she has been on the same food for about 2 months now so im sure its not anyting she has eaten.
Im going to keep a close eye on her maybe a trip to the vets tomorrow.
Im wondering if it could just be because she got stressed out shes running on her wheel now as i type.
Also when i put her back in her house she was eating and drinking fine.
Do you think she just stressed herself out too much or that shes not well?

Many Thanks

It's probably from you trying to trim her nails. Some of them will get a tinge of green with any type of stress. I have ones that will have green the night their cage is cleaned, bath night, or nail trim night.

Count the kibble you give her and count again the next morning so you know exactly how much she is eating. Chances are it's just a bit of stress but it's best to keep a close eye for a few days to make sure.
