Should I Take My Hamster To The Vet?

When it comes to a pet's health and wellbeing, it's best to err on the side of caution. Your pet depends on you to keep it safe, happy, healthy, and free of hunger and pain. If you suspect that something is wrong with your pet that you can't deal with - or accurately diagnose - yourself, take the hamster to the vet to be on the safe side.

  • Squeaks or other sounds suggesting pain
  • Something in the eye, or eye soreness in general
  • Loss of appetite
  • Refusal or inability to drink
  • No urine
  • No poop
  • Diarrhea
