Default Scruffing a speedy, wriggly hamster.

I need to check Myrcella's teeth, and I've tried so many times to scruff her. She starts squeaking and manages to wriggle her way out. She also puts her head down towards her stomach so I can't see her teeth anyway. She's extremely fast, and Leedsgurl has tried helping me with scruffing her before and it helped but still didn't last long and I still couldn't see her teeth properly.

I just want to make sure she hasn't permanently damaged her teeth from chewing the bars. She can eat and drink fine though, I just want to make sure.

Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated!

I remember how wriggly she was! Maybe try putting something near her nose to sniff? (maybe a bit of bedding or something belonging to one of the boys). I've previously taken photographs so I can get a good look at teeth as well for particularly wriggly hammies.

That's good Idea, thanks I will have to get my brother or someone to help. Just don't want to stress her too much, she starts squeaking, it makes me sad.
