If you have any saline solution for contacts that works well too by applying some drops on the crusted area and after your done just wipe the area with a cotton ball.

hi with my old hamster Roxy she used to get this all the time and for me to get it to stop I had to get cotton buds and get them slightly damp and then brush it over the crust on the hamsters eyes and had to sprinkle dew water on her eyes every morning for 2 weeks then it just went away I hope this helps you could also try sort of tempting her with some thing witch has got an odor and while she's sniffing it do the cotton buds so it would be easier because it would keep he or she still.

I can answer general questions on Syrian Hamsters concerning breeding, housing, furnishings, how to pick a healthy hamster, bedding and some common health problems. I can not answer questions on medications for hamsters.


I have had Hamsters for over 5 years now. I have experienced breeding them, the birth of pups and also death.
