Default Re: Ear cancer?

Three of my hamsters, including a dwarf had treatments with Xeno 50 spot on but at higher dosages. Not one of them showed any side effects and one drop is a very low dose.

I have no experience with the ear drops but to me they seem a sensible course of action.

Metacam is a painkiller and many elderly hamsters are on it longterm.

Thing is that All medications whether they are for humans or animals, can have side effects.
It is a health professional's duty to point this out to patients so it is not something to get overly alarmed about.

You take excellent care of Loki and sometimes we have to venture into the unknown in the hope to make things better.

I totally understand your concerns though because i also feel apprehensive at first when giving a hamster a new medication.
