Going back to the vet today. My doctor here in Japan says they don't do x-rays on hedgehogs, which is annoying. Yesterday his breathing was very, very bad. He was wheezing, coughing, and sputtering all over the place. It turns out my neighbor has a fancy air purifier/humidifier and they let me borrow it. Today he seems to be doing better, but I'm still taking him in.

After I took a shower, I let him run around in the steamy room for 5 minutes or so. Is this ok? It seemed to help. When I called the vet they told me to either bring him in or keep him on the Baytril for another week. He's been on it for 16 days already. Does this seem strange to anyone else? I'm worried sick over my little guy.
