Default Green Slime poop

Hello I am a new hedgehog owner. This past Sunday I brought home Belle. Today in the morning I notice that her wheel was clean and she was in the same place that she sleeps in. It was odd in compare to her other days but I thought it was because she is still a baby. Today at night I feed her like usual but she started to poop it was slimey and green. I also notice that she seems to be sniffing. I belive it might be because I forgot to change her water. She is moving around but is not playful.

What temperature is her cage at? Do you have a thermometer in her cage to know exactly what temperature it's at? What kind of heating system are you using? She might too cold. Has she been eating and drinking normally? Are you feeding her the same food she was on before you got her, or did you switch it out? Hedgies can have sensitive tummies when you change food and can result in green poo. Food changes need to be done gradually to avoid problems.

I do have a thermometer checking the temperature in her cage. Currently it is at 75'F. There is a small heater in my room keeping her warm. She has been eating and drinking normally. The food that I am giving her was given to me in the place where I bought her. Right now she poop again. It is not as green but still mushy. The past nights she liked to dig all the way to the bottom of her cage and sleep there. I don't have a heating pad under her cage so I think it could have been that. I am taking her to the vet.

If you just brought her home a week ago, she may still be a little stressed out. I think it should pass, once she is used to her new home.
