Home > Hamsters > Diseases


Just like in humans, it is not possible to predict if your hamster will have an allergic reaction to certain foods or other items. Common signs include prolonged sneezing or wheezing. The first place to look for the cause of the allergic reaction would be the hamsters food. If you have recently changed something in the diet of your hamster that is most likely the cause and you may wish to try reverting the changes you made to the hamsters diet. It may also be a new item introduced into the hamsters cage or even the wood chips or shavings that you line the cage with. Any changes made recently should be evaluated to determine the cause.

If you are unable to determine the cause of the allergy a trip to the veternarian is recommended. The veterinarian can most likely determine the reason for the allergic reaction and recommend steps to take to avoid it in the future.
