Unhappy Please help my hedgehog just vomited blood and is acting strange!

i'm typing this as im still awake at 3:14 am.
She hasn't been eating for almost a week now, so I tried to just wait it out and see if she eats. Yesterday my mom saw her throwing up and it was clear (and some green) This was because I changed her paper from aspen to bedding just because i saw online that it absorbs urine better and also aspen can cause respiratory issues. So she was eating the paper and right now i checked on her and her and her signs are:
weakness
takes long pauses in front of the water bottle looking all dizzy
looks a lot skinnier

Once i saw all of this I immediately checked her wheel and there is RED blood and some green too. She is only 2 years old, you have NO IDEA how awful i feel right now.

I have no job at the moment and taking her to the vet is not something financially possible. help please.

Most vets will work with you on a payment plan so please try to get your hedgie to the vet!

It’s not good for them to go without eating, fatty liver disease can set in within as little as 2 days. After two days of not eating they need to start being syringe fed food as well as water if they aren’t drinking. The green in the vomit is the bile from their stomach.

Vomiting blood is an emergency and vet appointment is a necessity. If you can't afford the vet then you need to look into borrowing the money from a friend or relative. Your hedgehog is sick and needs help.

hey sorry i havent replied these past weeks. I found out that the blood was from her poop. I immediately called my breeder and she suggested to change her bedding back to aspen, change her food, and also syringe feed her water. she is now back to normal, her poops are very well formed after eating the new insectivore diet. no more bloody stools and dehydration.
