Exclamation Not eating and super weak

Hi guys im new at this forum, but i dont know what else to do right now, so i bought my african pygmy hedgehog almost 2 months ago from a horrible petshop, 2 days after i bought him i realized he had mites, so i took him to the vet they gave him a spray in the back and a week later he had no mites but lost almost all of his quills, 2 more weeks and his quilling process was done, one week later from that, he scratched himself above the eye and cause an infection from the wound, so once again i took him to the vet, and he got prescribed the next things:

(you probably wont know this medicines cause i think they are from Mexico where im from)
orally give him a drop of AMOXIPET PLUS (AMOXICICLINA/AC.CLAVULANICO) each 12 hours for 7 days
orally give him 1 drop of MELOXIPETS (MELOXICAM) each 24 hours for 5 days
and finally to spray the wounds with SOLUVET 3 times a day

so after the 7 days where done he had his check-up with the vet, and i said to the vet that he had been shaking and peeing green, she only said to me that she had never seen that in a hedgehog and the shaking thing, that maybe it was woobly disease, i dont think is woobly disease because it wasnt always, he shaked from time to time, and when he got a little bit of sun he was normal, so when the vet didint helped me at all with the shaking and peeing green i tought that maybe my hedegehog was trying to hibernate.

so lets go to the present now, he is shaking a lot (i didint have a heat source for my hedgehog since yesterday) he was cold to the touch, but now that he is hot or normal temperature, he cant even stand, he falls and cant get up, still peeing green and hasnt eat or drink water in almost a week now, im very worried for the life of my hedgehog and i hope you guys can help me, and if its to late, i dont want him to suffer, so also tell me if its to late to take him to sleep

sorry if my english is not the best but is not my native language sorry.

also i weight my hedgehog and he weights 130grams, and probably loosing weight because he is not eating, i dont know what to do now.
