Home > Hamsters > Diseases


It is not entirely uncommon for a hamster to obtain some sort of a chronic disease that it cannot recover from. Although of course it will be very difficult to make this decision as the pets owner. With certain diseases this is often the kindest and will ultimately cause your hamster the least amount of pain. Many hamster owners take their own feelings into account far too much when making this kind of decision. It is most important to think about the hamster and the amount of pain that they are in.

Never attempt to perform a euthanasia on your own. Many people believe that they known the proper techniques and feel that they can safely perform this at home after doing some research on the topic. Usually this will cause your hamster more pain than is necessary. Consequently, always seek the advice of a veternarian first as they may even be able to offer a treatment for the disease that your hamster is facing.
