I also wouldn't recommend just doing antibiotics without a vet seeing the hedgehog - antibiotics shouldn't be used willy-nilly since things build up a resistance to them. Good luck and I hope you can get her in soon.

I don't wanna risk it either way. I was planning on going today, but after 6 p.m. they consider it emergency and they raise their fee to $200 and I'm limited on funds at the moment. So I'll be taking her in first thing tomorrow as soon as I get home. Thank you all for your help and hopefully I'll be getting advice later on about other things from you all

I just want to add a side note that I totally agree with Lilysmommy about the antibiotics, and I want to clarify that my previous suggestion to have the vet call in a prescription without seeing the hedgehog was only meant for a desperate life-or-death type situation.

The sneezing has calmed down, but after all this I am still going in for a checkup to make sure she's okay. She seems to be normal besides the sneezing and her nose, but she isn't like inactive and all. I know she gets exercise because her wheel is dirty everyday :P

Update:
Took my hedgie as soon as I got home to the vet and she is now on antibiotics for a week or so. I hope the sneezing is gone by then, again thank you all for the help

So am I, they had recently lost their exotic animal vet, but another was able to diagnose and prescribe me what she needed. It isn't a hassle to make her take the medicine either! All she does is bite the little syringe then I push the antibiotic in
