Hamster Not Eating And Drinking


If your hamster stops eating or drinking, consult the vet asap. Without food and water a hamster will fade and die very quickly. The symptoms are usually indicative of a serious health problem.

Hamsters that stop eating and drinking need to be taken to a veterinary attention

Before assuming there is a health issue, quickly check to make sure your pet actually has access to food and water. Is an obstruction, malfunctioning apparatus, or aggressive cage mate preventing access to the food tray and drinking bottle? Is your pet having trouble moving, and therefore unable to get to the food and water? Is the food mouldy or spoiled in some way?

Once you're sure none of these issues are at the root of the problem, you can conclude that it is a serious illness, which will need immediate veterinary attention.

My hamster is eating little food that I give him. I just recently re-arranged his platforms in his cage and he started eating. He ate a little more before that, but still not as much as he used to. I went camping for a few days and loaded his cage with food and I came back to see about the same amount left.
