Unhappy One concerned mommy!

I've had Spike for two months now and the day after I got him he was sneezing ( i got him from a local breeder). I've always been concerned since then but his sneezing is not consistant, sometimes he sneezes like 5-6 times in a row and licks his nose but does not sneeze for 2 days after! He eats fine and runs on his wheel everynight since I have him! His nose is not dripping but seems more wet than usual sometimes.. Also, when I cleaned his wheel today, I was that his poop was a little green when being washed off ( seems normal when you just look at it), and some of his quills were green. No change in alimentation and no cause of stress possible! I'll be taking him to the vet soon, i'm just concerned of the price of it all! Also, i'd like to know if anything like that happened to your little hedgies to maybe feel better or not !!

Are you keeping him warm enough? What about his bedding? You need to be very careful with his cage temperature. Is his belly cold?
I think that a little sneezing every now and then isn't concerning if there are no other symptoms. It's possible that he needs a warmer environment.
I have no idea about the poop, could be a sign of a cold, or maybe it's because of his food. It could also be a sign of an infection I think.

I think a trip to the vet is a good idea. That much sneezing plus an extra wet nose, even if it's not consistently extra wet, could be the beginning of a URI and should be looked at before it turns to pneumonia. The green poop could also be a sign of a URI. Have there been any changes to his diet or any stresses in his environment?
