Default my hamster just ate a small bit of a petal off a daffodil

Okay long story short because Iím slightly worried as daffodils are very toxic to hamsters, whilst out of her cage my syrian hamster took a little bit off the petal of a daffodil and pouched it. I was unsure of what to do so I quickly took her up and gave her food and bedding so sheíll pouch it because then normally she takes everything out of her pouch into her nest. She did this and I couldnít find the bit of the petal so Iím a bit worried she has eaten it. It wasnít much and was the petal, however Iím still unsure. Does anyone have any advice? Also I canít take her to the vets now as itís night time where I am, thatís if she needs to. Iíve been checking on her and sheís alright and sleeping, still her usual.

Just keep checking on her. If she is behaving fine then that is good. I think the symptoms of poisoning from daffodils include vomiting as well as other things, so as long as she is ok in herself then it's unlikely she's been poisoned.

It might be an idea to do a full cage clean though and replace all the substrate, nesting material and replace the hoard with new food. A bit stressful for a hammy but it's the only way you'll know it's not lurking around waiting to be nibbled.

Make sure you hide a few treats here and there to distract her from the upset of the cage clean!

I totally agree with what Serendipity said. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that she continues to act fine.
