I am not sure what Tinkerball was given when she needed to be sedated for an exam and to be rehydrated, but she was okay after less than an hour. She didn't seem drugged up or anything, and she was given an anaesthetic and a painkiller too. She was drowsy at first, but then she seemed pretty hyperactive for about two hours afterwards. I don't think what's happening to your hedgie is "right" -- it can't be his metabolism, can it?
