Exclamation Hamster (supposedly) not eating

I have had my around 2-3 month old hamster for a month now and she has always eaten well, but suddenly she stopped. She doesn't even have treats. Her bowl has been full for 2 days. She wont accept anything. She does everything else fine, on her wheel, running around and sleeping but im not sure about drinking. Please help.

Does she have a food horde stashed anywhere? It could be that she is eating reserves instead of daily supplies. Mine doesn't clear her bowl daily, sometimes it looks like it hasnt been touched. But I found her horde whilst spot cleaning yesterday. Lets say she wont starve. Just keep an eye on her, maybe offer her some fresh fruit or veg see if she will eat that instead

Like Jennie has said, are you 100% sure she's eating nothing? Have you tried offering a variety (be it even unhealthy for the purposes of testing) of treats to see if the issue is simply picky eating? Keep a very close eye on it, and have your vet on speed dial. It's generally not a very good sign when a hamster suddenly stops eating. Hope she is alright, please keep us posted on how she's doing!

She is eating in little bits like you say, when I put her bowl closer to her bed, she eats more. Does that mean anything?

Have you checked her stash yet? I find sometimes when they've made a nice big stash somewhere they won't bother taking much food for a while, it's unusual for them not to take treats though.
If you're not sure if she is eating it's worth weighing them regularly to keep a check, if she seems fine & active otherwise just keep an eye on her food, if she keeps it up there may be something wrong, it's not always that obvious with hams, they're very good at hiding health problems.
