Hello! My hedgehog, Cassie is very healthy other than this one little thing. I’ve noticed her nose is a bit runny. It does seem she has been licking her nose a lot because her nose area is pinker than usual. This only happened twice this week but I just wanted to make sure she was okay. She has none of the other symptoms of upper respiratory infection. I searched it up on google and all that it showed was stuff about upper respiratory infection. I’m pretty sure that she doesn’t have it but I still thought it would be good to make sure! Thanks!

Great! Her nose is a bit crusty today and as I was writing this, she sneezed. I am taking her to the vet tomorrow to be safe though.

Yes, they’re so cute! Sometimes she sneezes when she sniffs something and it’s adorable!

Just got back from the vet and all is good! He said that something irritated her nose like dust or detergent and that was causing the runny nose and sneezing!
