Momo kinda seems extra snuffly today it sounds like she has a bit of a blocked nose. i need to know could she have a cold (i have had one) or is it more likely the tumour starting to affect her breathing? when the vet checked her mouth she said it didnt look like it was near her nose but it could be somwhow affecting her. i hate this :(

Hedgies can get respiratory infections. And it can be pretty serious for them.

From what I understand, it's not so easy to give a hedgie a human cold. But yours could have one anyhow. Normally, I'd say "bring your hedgie to the vet," but it sounds like you've already been there??

Yes they can get colds but she would probably be sneezing as well as the stuffy nose.

With the speed these tumours can grow, sadly it is possible it is nearing her nasal cavity especially if it has reached the roof of her mouth. :cry:
