While I was at work my heater shut off. I got home and checked on spike and his belly was cold, he wouldn't unball and he's wabbley now. I got him to unball and I warmed him up. he's on a heating pad now. It's been about 5 minutes. What else should I do and how long do I keep him on the pad. I know he needs to be watched because he may attempt it again but what do I need to do now?

Make sure he's eating ok. Usually when they hibernate, their bodies switch to "fasting" mode, so getting food in them after hibernation is good.

If you have something you can heat up(even if you soak some kibble in some warm water) might be a good idea as well.
