Default I think Tonights the Night...

I think Tonights going to have to be the Night to seperate. Salt and Pepper
I came into my Room to hear a constand squeaking like a cry for help! So i ran to the Cage and discovered Salts cut near her eye had worsened and they were sniffing each other furiousely..:/ Iknow the pictures arent great i tried my best.. sorry guys but i didnt want to cause any more stress.
The Black dot is the cut..it doesnt seem to come up very clearly..:/..

Then theres her Sister.. who i think has caused this.

Then here you can just make out the gashh... its red.

But usually. Salt^ The blonde hamster pictures(the one with the Cut) seems to be the more dominant one.. But there is no other reason for there to be a gash there. there is nothing that could enflict that damage to her in her cage let alone worsen it. Except Pepper. So any advice would be greatfully appreciated and i have spare cages and supplies Standing by..Thanks Guys! xxx

I don't have dwarfs so not much help sorry but I know the rule is to seperate as soon as blood is drawn so I think you should do this immediately, you can always try reintroduce them when you have some advice from someone expirenced etc..

Yes, sounds like you should seperate them although their names fits together very well xD
Or are you not sure that they had fight?
Maybe Salt hurts herself by playing with a toy? Do you have any dangerous toys in their cage? Anything spikey or similar?

Aww sorry to hear that they have injured in each other - I think that you are doing the right thing by seperating them.

You are going to feel much calmer with them separate. They will be fine. They may sulk for a week or so but will soon become much more people friendly. You are doingthe right thing.

Thankyou so much Souffle! It makes me feel so much better.. and i'm sure it will put my mind at rest. I am going to seperate them Tonight. they have identicle cages. just square ones for now(There more than enough room for a Dwarf) and i will probably get them new cages whilst out bargain hunting! Thankyou everyone for the quick responses i'll update you soon xxxx
