Hello! I had just given my hedgehog, Ginger, a bath when all of a sudden she started making these burping water noises. She then releases a puff of air after. It is like she is throwing up, but no barf comes out. Is she choking on water? She had dunked her head into the water when I was bathing her and now I am worried.

I am not sure I can send a video of her here, but I just want to make sure she is alright. If I can send a video, how? It is terrifying and I do not know if she will be okay. Or if she IS okay...

Saliva is exiting her mouth and I do not know what to do. I feel so helpless. It is like she is choking on the water that went in her ears/nose. I blame myself for allowing her to dunk her head in the water just as I looked back to her after grabbing some of her soap. What should I do?

But then she stopped. So she is not choking, but something else is happening? Is she just burping the water back out?

Keep a very close eye on her. Look out for any sudden behavioral changes and take her to the vet asap if problems start to arise.
