Default Help! Not sure if I'm paranoid, or it's just normal?!

Well a couple of days ago I gave my little guy a bath. And ever since then, he hasn't been so active or awake when he usually is. When I put him in his cage he just sits there wherever you put him down and doesn't move at all. So I'm not sure what's wrong with him.?!

Not an expert by any means, but is his cage warm enough? He could be too cold and therefore is being lethargic, which is dangerous for hedgies.

Did you keep him in a towel or blanket against you until he dried off as well? You want to make sure he's totally dry so he doesn't get a draft while he's wet!

Did he inhale any water or get water in his nose or mouth?

I got him as dry as I could, and I keep his cage as warm as I can to, right now we just don't have the money to get him anything heat wise yet, but we will get it soon.

I'm not sure. It may not have anything to do with the bath- maybe he is sick?

He's starting to get more active now, I walked in my room from being out and he was up and walking around, he was on his wheel, cuz there was poop on it. So I think he's good now.
