Unhappy Injured hamster

My 2 year old Syrian, May, I had found blood in her cage so I immediately got her out to check if she was alright but I found a cut on her underside near her tail. I've cleaned the cut with some saline solution but I was wondering if there is anything else I should do.

Default Re: Injured hamster

As long as it's been cleaned and she's on a soft, non-irritating bedding, then there isn't much more you need to do other than monitor her. Check daily to ensure it's healing. It should begin to scab over and then eventually fall off, but if it begins swelling or looking oozy, it has become infected and should be checked out by a vet. Do you have any idea what could have caused this cut?

You've done right with the saline solution and like Drago said, check daily that it's healing, if it comes infected then a vet visit would be needed to get prescribed antibiotics.
