Hedgehog make weird noises!
 
I've only had my hedgehog for 8 days now, but it seems that last night and today he's been making some weird noises.

It sounds like his stomach is grumbling like he has gas or something with a bit of random squeaking.

Also, when I went to give him a foot bath today, the noises he made sounded a bit different than the ones he usually gives.

Any idea on what I should do?

I have attached a 12 second video of one of the many sounds he's currently making

I also uploaded just the audio file online so you don't have to download it.

Sorry for quadruple posting. I'm just super worried.

Last night he barely ran on his wheel as well

Our little guy never made a noise like that in our memory. How are his other behaviors, like eating, sleeping, and running? It doesn't sound like a pained squeak, but maybe more of a hiccup? I don't know.

Could thee be a draft in his area? Or is it cold? Do you have a heat source for him?

I was thinking that it was a hiccup but last night he didn't eat or drink or run on his wheel or anything.

I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow :(

The windows are all closed and it's 76 in my room with a space heater

At first at least, that clicking sounds just like hedgie happy noises to me. It gets hard for me to distinguish if there might be other room noises or camera-bumping noises after that.

Well I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow at 10am.
I'm actually super scared that it'll be too late and that he won't get better.
Just wondering though, when I talked to the person on the phone, she said that their office charges 75 dollars for a visit and that they would have to sedate him. Does that sound right at all?
