Default How can I take care of my sick hedgehog while I wait for his medicine to arrive?

My 6 year old hedgehog has a respiratory infection. I'm out of state at the moment and can't afford a visit to the local vet, so my hedgehog's vet back home is mailing me baytril to give to him. It should be here on Tuesday, but is there anything I can do for my pig until then? Yesterday I noticed he was a bit lethargic, and even more so today. He's still eating and drinking and his poop looks normal. I put a couple of warm water bottles in his cage to make sure he doesn't get cold at all, but I'm really worried about him. I would take him to the vet right now if I could but I don't have money or transportation. Is there anything I can do for him at home until Tuesday? Please help.

How are you heating his cage? I think really the only thing you can do is just bump his temp up a degree or two. Hopefully it comes in sooner than anticipated! Good luck!
