Default wheezing sound?


My hedgehog is 10 months old. He is making this wheezing and squealing sound when he breathes. Before it only used to be when he was sleeping soundly and it was only the squeak and now it's when he's awake and it both a wheez and a squeak. I have a video of the sound. I would take him to a vet but because he's not very friendly, they would have to make him sleepy to check on him. (had to do this before). He's eating, drinking and popping normally. Everything is the same. I'm just really concerned. Let me know. Thanks!

It sounds like he could have a URI, which means he needs to go to the vet. If he has a URI & you don't get it taken care of, it won't get better, and it could turn into pneumonia, which can kill him. The earlier you catch a URI, the better. Is there any other vets around that you could try taking him to?
