Hibernating attempt help!
 
Hello, last night when I got Peggy out to play, (around 9:00pm) she had a super hard time waking up, and when she did she was crawling very slowly, and wobbling a lot. Her entire underside was cold. She was totally fine yesterday (apart from the sleepiness). I thought it was WHS turns out it was an attempt at hibernation.. I turned on her lamp and wrapped her in blankets and warmed her in front of my fireplace. She’s better (not wobbling) but she’s not eating a lot and not running on her wheel as much. Is there anything else I can do? My room is warm and her lamp has a thermostat. I want to make sure I’m doing the best for her- I’m so worried. Thank you so much.

My advice would be just continuing to warm her up and keeping a close eye on her. skin to skin contact also helps warm up hedgies and would suggest putting her under you shirt on your stomach to help warm her up!
