Default Change in hamster poop

I’ve noticed that my male Syrian hamsters poop has changed, some of the poo is a normal size, some of it is small and now some of it looks absolutely tiny. My hamster looks okay and is acting normally. He is eating and drinking. Sometimes the poop looks kind of “shrivelled”. I’m not sure if I should be worrying.

Default Re: Change in hamster poop

The shrivelled looking poops are the older poop which have completely dried up. Although hamsters normally have two different types of poop anyways on which they eat to absorb all the nutrients which they didn't full digest the first time around and a second type which contains fully digested food.

I would be worried if your hamster looks to be overly straining whilst pooping although this can be difficult to see as they poop in privacy. Or if the poo is an abnormal colour or really soft (diarrhoea). Maybe if you share a photo of your hamsters poop we may be able to determine whether it normally or not by comparing it to our hamsters.

Okay. His poo has started to return to normal, I would send a picture but it won’t let me(something about the size). Thanks.

Serendipity created this very helpful thread in the Bugs and Announcement section of HC: How to resize photos 2018.
"Below are ways to easily resize photos to embed within a forum post for different operating systems in 2018.

Tip of the year is courtesy of Razor! Regarding using paint on Windows.

For Windows

Right click on the photo you want to resize - select Edit - Paint opens. Click on "Resize" which is displayed at the top. Select "pixels" and 700 (which is about right for the forum page). Then click - File - save as - jpeg and you then have the option to rename the photo (eg file name resized) and save it where you want, which keeps your original photo intact.

For IOS or Android

I believe one of the best/easiest app to use is called "Image Size". Again it gives you the option to select "pixel" and it is the width that needs to be 700 ish (the length should change automatically when you select the width). It's free but has in-app purchases.

Embedding photos on the forum page

You can then embed the resized photo on the page and there is a separate sticky on this by April Pearl."

I hope that this helps.

I totally agree with all that SKB said concerning hamster poo. I am glad that his poo is now returning to normal, and I hope he continues to be doing well.
