Ear Infections

Home > Hamsters > Diseases

Hamsters which have ear infections will commonly appear to lose their balance and sense of coordination. All animals rely on their ears for balance, especially hamsters.

If the ear infection is unattended to over a period of time serious complications can occur. There is nothing that you can do for the hamster at your house to eleviate the infection. The only treatment for an ear infection is to take the hamster to a veternarian who can properly diagnose it and recommend an antibiotic of some sort. Hopefully the veterinarian will also be able to point you in the right direction to determine the source of the infection. Without doing so it is likely that the ear infection will reoccur once the hamster has been reintroduced to its habitat.
