Default Re: Trying to work out what is wrong with Sylvie...

One of my past hamsters did have a stroke and his condition changed over the course of a few days. Sometimes he seemed to get better and half an hour later he couldn't even walk.

Strokes or anything concerning the brain is hard to diagnose correctly in small animals. The important thing is that your hamster is not suffering unnecessarily. If she does not recover or you think that she is barely hanging on and pushing through, you may need to think about relieving her of the pain and visting your vet.

You know your hamster best and can decide what ist the right course of action. Especially since she is already two years old and a senior hamster.

I hope she pulls through and wish you all the best!
Currently without a little one to take care of.
My beloved past hamsters:
Poppy, Lulu, Pebbels, Fienchen, Toni, Sherlock, Trudi, Murmel, Sir Henry, Whiskey, Amy and Joey
