Default Coughing up pink tissue

My 13 yr old daughter just got a hedgehog. She is 6 weeks old and very sweet. Last night she coughed up what looked like a clear membrane with a bit of blood around it. I saved it and took it with me to the vet today. The vet put her on antibiotics not knowing what was wrong with her. I got her home and she now has coughed up pink tissue two more times. What could this be? She looks healthy, doesn't seem distressed, and hasn't been injured in the four days that we have had her. She is very calm (maybe too calm?) what could be the reason for coughing up tissue?

That sounds bad. I would think she had some sort of a tumor but her age makes me think that is not the case. It does not sound good but I am glad you took her to the vet. You would be best off asking the vet these questions because anything we tell you is purely speculation. Make sure you are taking her to an exotics vet and not just a regular cat/dog vet.
Best wishes,
