im not an expert but just a thought: maybe the heat mats are causing the hair loss/pinkness on her belly. while hedgehog bellies are naturally pink, constant hair loss is not normal. heat mats are not recommended as long term contact can cause burns or irritation and as artemis said it doesnt heat the air. id recommend switching her heat set up to a lamp with a CHE bulb! that will stave off URI's for sure and maybe help her belly.
