Question Is Hamster Sneezing Normal?

Hello everyone,

Is something wrong if your hamster sneezes? I have noticed that my hamster sometimes sneezes (I think that's what it is). Does this mean she has a cold, or is it normal? Or if your hamster sneezes, is that bad?

Thank you!

Occasional sneezing is probably nothing to worry about but if it's frequent then it could be a sign of illness, allergy or maybe a dusty environment.

Okay, thank you! I have not heard her sneeze often, just occasionally.

does your hamster have any red skin on the underside? could be an allergy to bedding, as I have experienced in the past, once we changed to a pure paper-based bedding the "rash" and sneezing stopped completely.

I am not sure, I will look tonight when she wakes up. I doubt it's an allergy, because I've had her for 11 months (I got her March 31st, 2019), and I've used mostly the same bedding. I will still check though. I haven't heard her sneezing in a few days.

Allergies aren't always something that occurs right away or even all that fast. They can show up out of nowhere after using the same exact substrate for a year or more for various reasons!

It doesn't sound like an allergy & if she's not sneezing now I wouldn't worry.

Okay, thank you for all of your help! I looked at her underside yesterday and I didn't see any red.
