Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. From the description you have given it sounds like we may be dealing with a tooth root abscess. The roots from teeth can extend into the nasal cavity and up. If I am correct the Hedge hog will need to be seen by an Exotic Vet. They will need to take some X rays to tell exactly what is going on. I am sure they will start an Antibiotic safe for Nessie to help with the infection.
If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
Where I live in Fla, may be looking at $150-$200 depending on what they do and the Antibiotic given. You may try to see if you could get away with the bare minimum and see if they would just give an antibiotic, which would be an office visit and less than with an Xray and treatment. Care Credit offers a Pet credit card, which make it easy to finance the Vet Visit. http://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/
