    i went to feed my hamsters this morning and I found my brown robo dwarf hamster dean was stuck in between his door! I don t even know how he got it open,but he was kinda wedged in between the joint and he was wiggling alot. So I immediately let him free and put him back in the cage,and that s when I saw blood. On the door,I m his stomach,on the wood shavings,but it was coming from his leg. So we put him in his travel box and he was limping,it looked like his leg was broken! After a while he stopped moving. My mom and big sister are taking him to the vet but they told me to stay at home. I know i should keep calm but I m only 11 and I m crying uncontrollably. If it was just a broken leg,I wouldn t be as worried,but I don t know how much blood he lost! It seemed like alot. He s so small and he must be I m so much pain. I m worried he s not going to make it,just someone please tell me if he s going to be alright or not,and please don t give me false hope.

  • Should I neuter my male rat?

    I have 4 male rats who live together in a big cage and I have noticed more recently there are a lot of fights going on, one particularly had a big abscess resulting from a fight.

    I have 4 male rats who live together in a big cage and I have noticed more recently there are a lot of fights going on, one particularly had a big abscess resulting from a fight. I’ve been observing them and I worked out who the perpetrator was. Last night I did and experiment and removed him from the cage into a temporary hospital tank (he’s the one with the healing abscess) to see if the general atmosphere in the cage changed. Normally I’d be woken up 1-2 times a night to the sound of them squeaking and thrashing about. Last night there was silence, this just proves to me he is the one causing the problems. Obviously I can’t get rid of him or keep him separate forever. Would neutering help this issue? He is about 7-8 months old at a guess. I would hope that this would reduce the hormone levels. I would rather not neuter at all personally.

  • Hamster won't stop biting bars need advise?

    Best answer: This behavior is perfectly normal, of course; but I suppose it keeps you awake at night. Personally, I love to hear a pet rodent's noises at night, gnawing the bars or running the wheel. But gnawing the bars isn't necessary.

    Best answer: This behavior is perfectly normal, of course; but I suppose it keeps you awake at night. Personally, I love to hear a pet rodent's noises at night, gnawing the bars or running the wheel.
    But gnawing the bars isn't necessary. First, if you have some vinegar, wet the bars down with vinegar. This is supposed to make the bars taste bad so the hamster won't want to bite them anymore. If this doesn't work, go to the pet store and buy Bitter Apple or a similar bitter product. They sell it mostly to stop dogs chewing on things, but it works with rodents too. You spray some on the bars and they will taste bitter and the hamster won't want to gnaw them then. You may need to put some more on once in a while. Don't get any on the food or dishes, because it tastes bad.
    Make sure your hamster has something it can gnaw on though. Also, if it doesn't have a wheel, get one; it helps run off energy and keep the hamster happy. If the wheel is noisy, you can generally fix it by adjusting the wires [if it has wires] and/or by oiling the joint with cooking oil or petroleum jelly.

    Best answer: A few things can cause this, the most common is mites. Ifyour hamster is scratching itself excessively, that is a good possiblity.

    Best answer: A few things can cause this, the most common is mites. Ifyour hamster is scratching itself excessively, that is a good possiblity.
    Another thing could be dry skin and a psoriasis issue, that you have to be experienced with to spot correctly.
    There are over the counter treatments, but if you are not certain what you are dealing with, you could be just wating time and money, meanwhile your pet is miserable.
    Just a hamster is a poor cop out, they area pet and they can suffer. A vet is just not going to be so expensive unless it is something hat the vet would have to treat.
    Older hamsters do often loose hair, no skin injury, but much being an unbalanced diet like too many nuts and not enough saturated oil foods.
    It is understandable not wanting to spend a lot of money on an older hamster, but any suffering really needs to be dealt with, even if it means humane euthanizing.
    More food for thought, hamsters can use a sand bath like chinchillas, that is how they groom and clean themselves.
    Bathing in water is not suggested.

  • Hamster or rat?

    Best answer: That’s up to you. But my preference is a rat. They’re much more interactive and intelligent. They can be taught tricks and to come when you call their name.

    Best answer: That’s up to you. But my preference is a rat. They’re much more interactive and intelligent. They can be taught tricks and to come when you call their name. Rats still poop a lot but not as often as hamsters so you’re less likely to get pooped on when handling them. The rat I had would try to climb down off of me whenever she needed to poop. So whenever I noticed her trying to climb down I’d put her in the cage to do her business and never got pooped on lol. Rats are very social animals so you should get at least 2.

    They are either Mice or Rats, they have been in my house for just over a month now come to think of it. I would walk into my kitchen and my cat is just sitting there in the dark staring at the corner, i didn't pay it much mind. Now i can hear sounds in my room!, of all places!. Its in the wall to the left of my bed around my window and skirting boards, i first heard them last night; i thought it was something outside so i closed the window. Then last night im in bed and i can hear a scratching noise and then this morning a could hear it at the other end of the wall and then it ran from one side to the other. I made a concoction of mint and cloves with some pine needles from my christmas tree and boiled it for about 20 mins then put it in a spray bottle and sprayed it at tiny cracks where the piping for the radiator goes into the ground, as rats are supposed to hate those smells, well, it turns out they don't give a ****, because tonight, they're back. They aren't bothered when i bang on the wall either. I hope they're mice and not rats. I don't really want to kill them, but i really wish they would just **** off.

    I am allowed to either get a hamster or budgie as a pet. So, the reason why I want a budgie is cause it lives for a really long time, which is actually an advantage for me. It lives for 5-15 years. Also, I could teach it to do tricks and all that stuff. The reason why I want a hamster is cause... they are so chubby and cuddly and cute! I mean, budgies are cute but in my opinion hamsters are cuter. Also, hamsters could keep themselves really warm unlike budgies, and I live in a place where it could get really cold in winter. Also, hamsters are nocturnal, so when I go to school they will be sleeping! :D The problem tho... is that hamsters live for 1-3 years only. :( I want/need a pet that lives for more a long time. Please help me out, give me adive about which one I should pick. Thank you.

You can keep the hamster's cage on top of a dresser or somewhere else where your dog won't be able to reach. Never take your hamster out to play when your dog is in the room. Close the door to make sure that it will be safe.

    If you have a guest room in your home, it is best if you move the hamster to live in there and keep the door closed at all times. But if not, just keep the cage out of reach. Close your bedroom door when you aren't there to prevent anything from happening when you can't watch.
