Default Not sure if this is a URI or not.

I keep reading everyone's stories and the more I read, the less similar symptoms I saw. Cinnamons symptoms started last Wednesday when I noticed she was sneezing a lot. She had clear stuff coming out of her nose and she was licking it a lot. Called the vet and told them this. They said to put her on the baytril I already had.

That night she ate less food. Then Thursday she ate nothing. Friday she ate around 15 kibbles(not enough). Saturday, nothing again. Started syringing her. She will sometimes eat her mealworms. Other times she spits them out.

Her symptoms however seem to have improved, still a bit of clear coming out of nose and the occasional sneeze. When I went to the vet on Friday the vet listened to her chest and said she didn't hear too much in there.

Her poops are completely green and small from the meds and not eating much. So with other people's posts I'm reading that they're having trouble breathing and nothing about losing appetite. Does this sound like a URI to you?

Anytime a hedgehog is sick they can stop eating. Many times the antibiotics can upset their stomach. You need to syringe feed her every day, multiples times. The less she eats the worse she's going to feel and the less energy she'll have to fight off the URI. She should be getting about 24 mls of food syringe fed every day.

If she still has a runny nose she is still sick. It sounds like a URI, when they start having trouble breathing it's usually when it has progressed to pneumonia.

Okay. I was just worried because there's not too much about others not eating.

When one of my hedgies had a URI I had to syringe feed her the whole time she was on antibiotics. It's completely normal.
