Default URI

I know there are many posts about this.. but they don't seem to answer what I'm looking for.
Can someone tell me the symptom stages of a URI?
All I've got so far was runny nose and sneezing.. that's all people seem to describe it as.
Is there anything more?

Running nose and sneezing are the pretty obvious symptoms that you will more than likely first notice. When Brillo had his URI, he was blowing lil snot bubbles- poor guy. Also, I noticed that he had a slight wheeze or popping noise when he was breathing (most likely the phlegm moving around). He was very lethargic (which was odd since he's an explorer) and would sleep in odd places in his cage (in his food bowl, tunnel, under his wheel).

Anytime that you suspect your hedgie has an URI, I would take it to a vet immediately. If it is an URI it will only get worse. Hope this helps.

I bought my baby last weekend and she notified me telling me some of the babies had a URI, my baby girl is blowing snot bubbles and seems to sleep a lot... but it may be because she's only 8 weeks old..
Either way, you mentioning snot bubbles confirmed it to me, I will be taking her to the vet soon.

Thankfully the breeder has offered to pay vet expences for problem, since this is only my 4th day with her.

Even though she is ill, she is the absolute sweetest baby.

Thank you for your input about brillo, it was very helpful.
