Default Mabaline sneezing every now and then?

Hello everyone! I have a few small questions concerning sneezing. mabaline has been doing very well, eating,pooping, drinking, and wheeling but for about a week now she sneezes occasionally. About once a day. Is it normal for a hedge to sneeze like other pets do. I have stopped using carefresh in her little pan and switched to paper towel due to dust content. Is there anything else that could cause irritability in a hedgies nose? Like fragrances? i am still using fleece bedding I change it every two weeks, should I change more frequently? Thank You!
Note:Sneeze usually happens when I first wake her up

Sneezing is usually a sign of an URI, which needs to be treated with antibiotics. But it can be from other things as well sometimes.

Fragrances could cause it. What do you wash the fleece in? You should switch to a scent-free detergent (and softener, if you use it) if you don't already use it, and see if that helps. Make sure there are no other strong scents in the room either - room freshening sprays, perfumes, candles, air freshener plug-ins, etc.

If you can't find another cause for it, I would personally suggest going to the vet to make sure it's not a URI. It could possibly just be a quirk or something, but it'd be best to be safe and make sure it's not actually an illness. URIs can turn into pneumonia, which is often deadly.
