I'm so sorry to hear this. Pearl needs to see a vet asap. Please let us know the outcome.

I am really sorry to hear Pearl is poorly. Please let us know how you get on at the vets. I am thinking of you both.

We just got back from the vet, and she has a bad urinary tract infection. They gave some antibiotics for her, and I got a little syringe for it. She takes it like a champ, but it's heartbreaking to see her just stop on her wheel and stand up when she'd normally potty and scoot it along.

I am so relieved to read your update. I have been checking all the time for one. I am sorry Pearl has a UTI but it should go with the antibiotics. Your beautiful bond means she will take the syringe from you. I hope she gets better soon.

I also kept checking for updates. The antibiotics should start to work soon and then Pearl will start to feel better. Just keep a close eye on your little girl which i'm sure you will. Wishing her a speedy recovery.

Thank you so much guys! Unfortunately she hasn't improved over the past few days, and now has pretty bad diarrhea plus discharge coming out frequently. I'm taking her back to the vet tomorrow, and I'm worried so much about the little girl.

I do have one video to share from the day before she got sick, she stopped coming out the next day and began clicking at me. I originally thought she was just upset at me for fixing her wheel and interrupting her time on it.

Looking back, you can kind of see she's more lethargic and wary of everything. I love the little girl so much

I am so sorry to hear that Pearl has not improved. A bad UTI can take more than one course of antibiotics to clear.

I'd take her back to the vet asap to rule out something like pyometra (discharge and bad smell). Diarrhea in hamsters is always reason for concern and she may need a different antibiotic plus a probiotic to support her gastric system.

My heart felt thoughts are with you and little Pearl.

Pearl has passed overnight, I found her laying ontop of our together corner.

She was absolutely amazing, I already miss her so much.

I am so so sorry. My heart breaks for you. Please remember you gave Pearl the most wonderful life. She loved you just as much as you loved her. I have never seen such a beautiful bond. We are all here to support you. I am sending you a virtual hug.
