So am I, they had recently lost their exotic animal vet, but another was able to diagnose and prescribe me what she needed. It isn't a hassle to make her take the medicine either! All she does is bite the little syringe then I push the antibiotic in

Update:
Took my hedgie as soon as I got home to the vet and she is now on antibiotics for a week or so. I hope the sneezing is gone by then, again thank you all for the help

I just want to add a side note that I totally agree with Lilysmommy about the antibiotics, and I want to clarify that my previous suggestion to have the vet call in a prescription without seeing the hedgehog was only meant for a desperate life-or-death type situation.
The sneezing has calmed down, but after all this I am still going in for a checkup to make sure she's okay. She seems to be normal besides the sneezing and her nose, but she isn't like inactive and all. I know she gets exercise because her wheel is dirty everyday :P

I don't wanna risk it either way. I was planning on going today, but after 6 p.m. they consider it emergency and they raise their fee to $200 and I'm limited on funds at the moment. So I'll be taking her in first thing tomorrow as soon as I get home. Thank you all for your help and hopefully I'll be getting advice later on about other things from you all
