Default Re: Syrian Hamster Weight

I was always concerned of my Syrian being underweight. When he was full grown, he weighed in at only 103 grams. He always seemed cold and just too small. I got him a food brand with plenty of fatty nuts and he has recently gained 10 grams over the last few months. He just seems happier now. He doesn't appear cold and his coat looks a lot fuller.

Our long haired golden weighs 200gm, and our black haired Syrian (who we said goodbye to this week) also weighed 200gm.

Show hamsters are usually 200 - 300g, sometimes weighing more. For a pet shop ham I think around 140g is average, but some still do weigh less. It depends on your hamsters skeletal structure - if you can see or easily feel the spine then they are most likely underweight. If they're overweight they will usually have 'rolls' or flabs of skin. 90g does sound very small for a syrian.

This is such a good post, thank you. I was worried my Ralph was getting a little fat, I weigh him every Thursday, he's 190g, but reading this it looks like he's currently average and I shouldn't worry if he gets a little fatter. He's been steadily putting weight on, a few grams each week, since I brought him in February.

I shouldn't worry Ralphieboy - our last Syrian was 225g - he shot up in weight in the first few weeks we had him (not fully grown) - some hammies are just bigger all over - a bit like humans - some are taller, some are shorter
