|Comment||Thank you very much for your reply. I think her teeth look ok and she has plenty of things to knaw them down on. I was already worried about illness and as you say it could be a tumor. I think we will just have to see how she goes as she doesn't seem to be in any pain when she is handled. I will monitor her carefully and if she seems to get much worse I will take her into the vet. As she is now I don't think they would be able to help much! Are there any supplements or medicines I could buy a the pet shop that might improve overall health? Also could I be feeding her too many meal worms? Thanks again Helen|
Syrian hamsters are my specialty, however, I have kept Campbells,Winter Whites and gerbils in the past. I can advise on most subjects associated with hamsters, including housing, bedding, feeding, handling, new borns and catching escapees. I have had some experience of various health problems with hamsters and can offer my opinion and advice on basic health issues, however I am not a qualified vet and therefore cannot recommend drugs etc. My website is www.thehamstersite.com
I have been keeping hamsters and other small animals for more than 12 years. My favourites are Syrian hamsters and I foster litters and 'difficult' hamsters for a rescue centre. My job is to tame hamsters ready for re-homing, which is extremely rewarding. I also enjoy looking after new litters and raising the pups. I have co-written a book on hamsters with my local vet and have a website: www.thehamstersite.com
