Question Wet tail drops

Do wet tail drops actual help prevent wet tail and can you put in anything other than water like on a treat.

Not really.They don't prevent or cure wet tail,and are honestly pointless

Steps can be taken to prevent wet tail,however.These would be avoiding stress as much as possible for your hamster,and using a high quality probiotic(no artificial colors,no artificial flavors,no digest/derivatives/other unspecified biproducts,no maltodextrin/dextrose/sorbitol/or other artificial sweeteners and processed sugars,etc).

It's just a money making gimmick, don't bother with things like that and just take steps to reduce stress in your hamster like Amity said.

PLEASE do not waste your money on wet tail drops!! They only mask they symptoms, they dont make the actual problem go away! Only prescribed medicine from a vet will cure wet tail!

Wet tail drops are completely useless in preventing or curing wet tail. If a hamster becomes ill with P.I. the drops will only mask the symptoms, not cure the sickness. The only way to cure wet tail is to take your hamster to a vet where they will receive proper medication.

The best way to prevent wet tail is to keep a hamster's environment as low stress as possible since stress weakens the animal's immune system which allows them to become highly susceptible to the disease.
