Default Hamster cataract?

Hi! I have a Campbell Dwarf hamster that's 1 year and 3-4 months old. She is an albino female. Recently, I've noticed that her right eye's been getting cloudy and seems bigger than her normal eye. Could this be a cataract since she's getting old? I'm afraid that it might be an eye infection.

Default Re: Hamster cataract?

I would take her to the vet & get her eye looked at, if the eye appears bigger or protrudes more than normal it could be an infection, they can also get tumours but fingers crossed it won't be anything that serious, if it is an infection a course of antibiotics should clear it up.
