Default URI Symptoms?

Hey everyone. Just bought a hedgehog from a breeder and he is 2 months old. I?ve noticed that lately, Bery, (my hedgehog) has been sneezing a lot. I?ve read other forums saying that this can be a sympton to URI, but his nose hasn?t been running and I feel that hes been eating/drinking well. He defenitely does sneeze a lot though, and Ive had him for about 2 weeks. The sneezing has been getting a little bit worse over the course of about 3-4 days. Should I take him to a vet?

What kind of bedding is he on? It wouldn't hurt to take him to the vet. It's always a good idea to visit the vet for a check-up after a couple of weeks of having your hedgie, so your vet can get acquainted with your baby.

He is on aspen bedding. The breeder had a different bedding when he sold him to me, but I bought different bedding than the one that came with the cage. This was a little more than a week ago, so I dont think it?s the bedding.

If he's sneezing more then i would take him to the vet for both a new pet visit and to rule out a URI.
