How to tell if your hamster is sick
Your hamster is a smart little creature who seems to find fun activities and new ways to spend his time in all sorts of places. He tends to be rather active when awake, but lately he has been a bit more laid-back. Could this be due to an illness?
Your pet may not be feeling well and this could be the cause of his increased lethargy. There are a lot of different symptoms of sickness that a hamster can show, and this is a rather popular one. He may also show changes in his eating habits or elimination patterns and consistency. He may simply not be interested in things he normally gets excited about because he isn’t feeling like himself and therefore he isn’t acting as he normally would. For additional information, please contact your local Fort Collins, CO veterinarian.
