Default Re: Hamster with grey reddish patch around eye.

Sorry to hear your ham has a problem with his eye, if it is an infection then it probably doesn't have anything to do with aspen unless there are any bits that could get into & hurt the eye, an infection will need treating with antibiotics so best to see the vet, if it's just a sticky eye then you could bath it with cotton wool & cooled saline or just water to see if that helps.
If he seems to be sensitive to different substrates then it may just be best to stick to paper based substrate to be on the safe side.
If you have a photo it might help us see what the problem is.
There's a thread here that shows how to add photos to your posts.
