She is a really special little hamster!

If I could ask everybody to please keep her in their thoughts, she has a chronic bone infection behind her eye which is unresponsive to antibiotics. She's been on them for three months and can't take any further antibiotics so we are just seeing how her condition progresses. She seems to be in no pain or discomfort and has metacam for inflammation and pain but we would so love her to get better. She is only 9 months old.

The last two days his eye has not been looking great... I've been giving him metacam for seven days now but there seems to be a swelling above the eye and it looks like he has lost some fur there.

I can't tell if it is just swollen or if there might be a growth starting

He seems absolutely normal- running about and eating well as usual but my wife is going to take him to the vet tomorrow. I am working so can't go with sadly. Am really concerned.

I am so sorry to hear that things may be getting worse. Thinking of you and little nanuk and hope the vet has been able to help. x

Thank you Charlie Dunn. This morning my wife took him out to put him into the carrier for the trip to the vet and his eye was looking perfect...no swelling or muckiness at all. She decided it would be pointless taking him to be examined if there were no signs of anything visible.

It is so frustrating. I wish he would just get better and stay better.

Firstly, your hammy is so gorgeous! I'm sorry to hear he's been having health problems and also pleased to hear that his eye has cleared up.
I too wishes he stays better.

I ended up having to take Nanuk to the vets today, last night the swelling was quite a bit worse.

He prescribed more petcam and to wash the area around the eye with salt water. He thinks the swollen area is due to Nanuk overpreening or scratching the area around the eye-possinly because it is irritating.

I really hope it works.

So do I. It must be such a worry for you and you are probably more affected by it all than Nanuk. Wishing you all well.

Thank you RiaP. Last night Nanuk's eye looked much more swollen but thankfully today it looked a tiny bit less so. Little Norman's nose (which he managed to scrape raw on his seed bell) is at least looking much much better.
