Default Re: My baby is sick.

I want to mention that I have been told that a slight occasional runny nose is normal. Diggory had that and it was clear and watery and I was freaking out thinking it was a URI but then it cleared up. I was told it could have been from the air being very dry from my space heater. But if your hedgie is sneezing frequently(diggory wasn't) then I would do antibiotics just in case. I know that can be difficult to convince a vet of, mine wouldn't give him any because he didn't want him to become immune to them...
