Default Re: Diarrhea

Hamster do produce two different types of poos the harder pellets and caecotrops (softer poos which they re eat). I had occasions when I’m cleaning my Syrians house I put my hand in some softer poos which smell stronger. But when giving a new treat especially which are more watery this can affect their poos.

However there is a possibility that this may be caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Due to the time I would make sure she eating and drinking. Ensure her bottom is clean as well as she not lethargic and seem in discomfort. And then check her first thing in the morning and if she still experiencing soft poos/diarrhoea try and get her seen by a vet.
