Default Re: Stop! Thinking of getting a pet hamster? Please read first.

I've never heard that dwarfs are social. I have winter whites and the research I did said to keep them apart (more than just for WW). However, my dad still thought they should be put together.

They are both females and they were kept in the same cage before purchase. They were fine for about 5 minutes, then they began to fight. I mean FIGHT fight, not like a little squabble I've seen among my other pets (many different species, in varying situations).

Needless to say, they are now kept separate. I haven't had any problems as a result. I've also kept them both near and far from each other and I really haven't seen any change.

I would suggest that before you purchase any pet, that you do your research. The internet will give you a lot of information (both good and bad) so I would always talk to a person who has had experience with the animal in question. And look at several sites/books, not just a couple or 'easy' ones.

To touch on vet fund. Make sure you have enough to cover the possibility of having to go to the vet every 2 weeks. Also exotic pet vets can be way more expensive. When i took my kiku in for her vet visit the consoltation itself was $70 the tooth trim was $51 and the anesthisa was $43 talk about a shocking vet bill. Now its about $70 every 2 weeks (the vet was nice cut the cost of the tooth trim in half and they dont charge for a recheck on pets). I didnt relize this and to be honest never expected to have to take her to the vet. Though she now goes every 2 weeks i wish i had a better prepair for it. I did alot of research but none of it ever said the real possible costs and of course they vary by area but this is just 1 example. Also make sure there is an exotic pet vet in your area. I live in a middle sized city and there is only 1 in a 25 mile radius.
