I thought I'd give a little bit of an update on Matthew now he's been on his medicine a couple of days.

His split has scabbed up and is starting to look more normal and the surrounding skin looks less sore so it looks like the medicines are having a positive effect on him. He's loving the extra wet cat food that I've been giving him with one of his medicines hidden in and the extra seeds he gets after his other medicine.

Matthew knocked the scab off of his skin split on Monday night and he really wasn't himself which concerned me a little bit but when I checked him again the next morning, he was feeling more like himself and his split had reformed another scab. This morning I checked him over and I now notice that his fur is just starting to regrow so I'm hopeful that it will protect his skin a bit more while he continues to heal.

I'm almost certain he will have some degree of scarring given the nature of his skin split which is a shame as he was one of my better show hamsters but hopefully we'll have another show team hamster ready to start next year's season.

Glad he's feeling more like himself again, the split is healing over & his fur is growing back now.
It's a shame if he has a scar that prevents him from doing well in shows now but he will always be a very handsome ham

Awww poor Matthew. I hope he'll recover fully from it so that he can get back to his winning ways, but as cypher says he will always be very handsome (maybe just a little more rugged than before)

Victoria's fur stull remains ruffled from her skin split which leads me to think that Matthew's may behave the same. Victoria's fur was one of her better features show wise (being cute isn't a criteria) and although Matthew had nice fur, he seems to score better than his mother did elsewhere so there's hope that he can make up the points he'd lose on fur.

James usually did well despite fur being one of his worst features (those moult lines) so it's not everything, it just depends on whether they can score enough over the rest of the criteria to still be in with a chance of placing.
