It's best you have him seen as soon as possible by a vet. These symptoms could be anything. I hope the vet can help him.

I canít say that the vets in Turkey know what they are doing when it comes to hamsters... They said its a neurological issue so they told me to give him a drop of vitamin B and aminoacids do you think that would help?

That doesn't sound very helpful. If it is neurological like a stroke or a spinal injury they won't be able to do much mind you except cage rest and perhaps an anti inflammatory like Metacam. Try resting him, keeping him warm but not hot and offer some soft food like babyfood or porridge to try and tempt him to eat. What age is he?

Unhappy Re: URGENT Hamster Acting Weird? Sick?

Well I think he just died 30 minutes ago... It’s either from overdose of the meds he got or he was in half torpor. I mean when i brought him back home, he wasn’t really moving anymore and was prettymuch sleeping. I realised this and started warming him up he started moving and etc. but i think i was too late bcs he started getting rigor mortis now and I can’t move his legs feet jaws or anything. I had laid him over a warm bag of water about 30C and he still couldnt get out of torpor now i put him back in his nest under the substrate about 3 cm deep. Idk what to do can he get rigor mortis withou dying or is he gone for sure?


If he somehow starts moving i guess im super lucky

I'm sorry to hear that - it does sound as if he has passed away. It must have been his time and you did your best to try and help him. I'd leave him overnight in his bed at just normal temperature and if he has passed away by morning he will not have moved or anything and if you look at his nail bed they will be a dark colour. You can then feel sure he can be laid to rest.
