Exclamation Male Hedgehog Possibly Making Strange Breathing Sounds?

I have my boy Jack, who is a little over a year old.

he uses carefresh bedding, and I've heard this often causes respiratory problems. (I've been trying to find an alternate method but I'm having trouble)

So when I get him out of his cage he often makes a very very light sort of chuff chuff chuff sound. Sometimes he doesn't make the sound though, so I'm wondering if perhaps its him hissing? Like a super quiet warning hiss?
I'm honestly terribly worried for him.

I'm not sure about the sounds. Hedgies make many sounds so I'm not too sure if the one you are explaining is normal. Maybe u can take a video with sound and post it??

But the best alternative to wood or paper bedding is Fleece. Have you tried it yet?? It's great! Much healthier for the hedgie
