I think my hedgehog is trying to hibernate and has mites. He has symptoms like curling up in a ball and won't open and his stomach is cold. The mites, I can see them on his skin and I feel really bad. I am short on money right now and can not afford to take him to the vet... I know I am horrible?. Any suggestions on what I can do he is acting like normal and I am scared

First you have to heat him up so he doesn't die. Second you have to take him to the vet. Not an option, especially if you can see the mites on his skin.

You need to heat his cage and keep it at a steady 74-76*F at all times. There is no home treatment for mites, you need to find a way to get him to a vet to be treated with Revolution, don't let the vet give him Ivermec or Ivermectin

Just warming him up isn't enough you need to have. Heating set up to keep the temperature warm enough and steady or it's just going to happen again.
