If it’s a bottle where the ball rolls around in the straw, it’s safe. The hazard comes in with bottles that have that little ball attached to a spring (flip the bottle upside down- if the ball falls into the straw it’s fine) where small animals can get their tongues severely pinched. With that being said, speaking from personal experience, my hedgehogs have all been observed drinking more water when offered in a bowl as it’s easier for them to access and less frustrating. If she is drinking fine and you notice a decent amount gone each day, then you shouldn’t have any worries!
