|Slava||dont mean to hijack, hoping I can get an answer to this question.. if my hedgehog sleeps inside a dark igloo, how would he see the light?? I think he doesn't actually look outside, he's on a biological clock and will come out at 10pm|

I'm glad you already have a vet appointment to get him checked out! Never a bad idea.
What temperature is his cage? Do you have a heating set up for him? Does he get 12-14 hours of light during the day? It sounds a bit like a possible hibernation attempt to me, which is why I'm asking.
What kind of wheel does he have? I know I found that Comfort Wheels were prone to falling over, especially if you used liners instead of a loose bedding that you can bury the wire in. Attaching it to the cage wall with a metal clip (like on a dog leash) might help keep that from happening again, just in case.

Please Help, Not sure what to do!
We have an albino Hedgy about 3 1/2 years old named Muu. The day before yesterday I found him outside of his iglo in a corner balled up and making a small speaking/wheezing sound as he breathed and not huffing when I picked him up. His wheel had somehow fallen and blocked the iglo entrance so he couldn't get back inside. I have been keeping a close eye on him and yesterday seemed much better, no more squeaking, running in his wheel no problem and eating just fine. Today when I took him out he refused to unball and it looked like it took a lot of effort to breath, his sides going in and out more than usual, but not wheezing. Just a bit ago I found him in his wheel laying on his belly and breathing slowly, making a squeaking sound. This worries me a lot! I have an appointment with a vet tomorrow morning at nine but just in case anyone is on here this late I wondered what you all thought. Thank you!
