Default Weight Campbell's dwarf hamster

Hi all,

Could someone please give me advice?

We have a Campbell Dwarf Hamster (according to the breeder/family tree purebred).

She is a female born on the 07th May 2020.
Today we had a weigh-in and she was 20 grams.

this seems way too low for us, but I wanted to ask your opinion about this. Also, if it is too low, do you guys have any suggestion upon feeding her some extra's (other than worms, oatmeal and nuts).

She seems awake and happy. Although we don't see her that much lately (since 2 months) - but we thought this was due to the season change.

Thank you in advance!

20 grams is very small. I think that's more of a robo weight.

Do you have a photo? Is she still eating/active when you do see her? Does she look skinnier than she used to?

All the foods you said are good ideas, you could add a whimzee or some babyfood to the list.

20g seems very low and at that weigjt she'd look thin i would have thought. I would check that the scales are working ok. When i get home i'll weigh my smallest dwarf hamster to get a comparison.
Did you check her teeth? Does she look underweight to you?
I'd check her over in case there is anything physically wrong with her.
Reason i'm saying this is because one of my dwarfs became reclusive and i missed a swelling on her underside developing.
