Default Re: Spinning Hamster

Have you considered the possibility of a stroke? They can spin like mad with that and can get worse and settle down again for a bit then start back up.

Another reason could be an ear infection; you don't need to see discharge for there to be one and the body can wall it off and trap it. Alternatively, he could have had a ear infection left untreated and left permanent damage.

Potentially could be stargazers. Typically people think it's just compulsive flipping but can be spinning too.

Have you had Pico checked by a vet? Have they done any exams or swabs?
