Default URI season?

Is it the time of year when URI are more rampent?? Or is it just all the talk here lately sparking more postings?

Or perhaps, I'm just reading too many posts and becoming a hypocondraic on behalf of my hedgie??

I noticed late last week that Daisy's nose looked wetter than normal and she was licking it more often, or I was just noticing the licking more, who knows. :P

Anyoo on Saturday morning she had little clear drips coming from her nose. So I turned up her heat, and put a little portable humidifier in her house. I also put some vicks vapor type stuff meant for small animals called Ferret Aid in the humidifier...( I used it when my gerbil had a year long re-occuring string of URI) I also snuggled with Daisy every chance I could this weekend. :P

So it's monday and there is no dripping. YEAH! I'll keep my eyes and ears on her for the next few weeks, if it returns we're off to the vet! ARGHH!!

I don't think there is any time of year that URI's are more common. I suppose the winter months could be if adequate heating is not used and hedgie attempts hibernation.

We are coming up to allergy season.
