Exclamation Irritated/inflamed robo ear

Hi so I never got around to making an introductory thread for my new robo, but thatís not the point of this thread.

Today I got back to my dads and this evening I took my robo out to tame him and I noticed his ear looks very red and a bit crusty. It seems slightly shrivelled compared to his other ear.

I last saw him Monday night I think and he seemed normal then. Heís acting normally (from what I know) but since heís still so new, heís not very tame so I canít get a closer look.

Iím just wondering if anyone has any clue what this could be? Irritation from his sand bath? I use the tiny friends sand and thereís Kaytee clean and cosy bedding in his cage. Iím going to try and get him a vet appointment ASAP, but obviously Iím just worried about him.

I have attached a photo and I apologise itís not the best, but otherwise I have to resize it on my laptop and that takes ages and also he does not stay still.

Default Re: Irritated/inflamed robo ear

I use the same sand and the Kaytee for all my hamsters so i don't think that's the cause.
The only person who can help is a vet. Please let us know the outcome and i hope your cute little hamster's ear will clear up soon.
