Default Re: Help with sick hamster (possible stroke)

Is she shaking at all? Does she feel cold? Check to see if she's dehydrated by pinching the skin gently. If it takes any longer than a second to return to normal, she's dehydrated and need rehydration fluids

Rehydration formula
Salt ( tsp)
Sugar ( tbsp)
Water (1 cup)

Offer this via syringe through the SIDE of the mouth. If she's cold, adding a heat pad on low over a portion of the cage (make sure it's underneath and on the outside) may help. Keep her comfortable and warm until you can get her to the vet. Good luck, hope she is able to hang on X
