Last week, my hedgehog cut her nose when she tried to escape her cage when i wasout for school. She bled on her nose and im not sure but it looks like as if it's swollen. She hasnt eaten for 3 days on her own now. But last night and today, i tried to hand feed her mushed princess cat food in water to soften it. She drinks plenty of water but she doesnt explore much. It looks like her right nostril is closed from the wound and blood and she has a difficult time breathing through the other at times. I couldnt bring her to a nearby vet, yet. Should i try opening the scar for her nose or clean it now with what? I appreciate the help so much Thank you

You need to get her to a vet asap and start syringe feeding her right now. After 24 hours of not eating they can start developing Fatty Liver Disease which can be fatal. She needs some pain meds and anti-infllamitories to help her heal. She is probably in a lot of pain and may have an infection as well.
