Default Help!!

this morning started like any other day. helped Groot (my one year old rescue African Pygmy) out of his toilet paper tube and went to work. about and hour ago I went to check on him and he was not too responsive. his breathing was very shallow. I felt his water bottle and it felt like it had come out of the fridge. I immediately got him out and started holding him. I did make the mistake of putting him in warm water he unballed when I did that but was very sloth like in his movements. for the last hour we have been skin to skin with a heating pad and towel. if i attempt to pet him he moves but I fear I may be too late 😭 and he won't come out of this. the house was at 68 ...i am so worried...

Just keep him warm. That's all you can do right now. If he makes it til tomorrow I would take him to the vet to get checked over. URI's are common after a hibernation attempt. Did his heating system go down?

That's good that he is responding. Hopefully you've taken him to the vet!
