Unhappy My hamster isnt eating

Help.. my female syrian seems to be very light, but not really underweight. Is there anything I can give her to help her gain weight? Or should I just wait and see if she goes back to normal? I'm not sure if she eats, she never hoards any food. She is quite young, so maybe her weight will stop fluctuating once she gets older???

Default Re: My hamster isnt eating

I would weigh her weekly to keep an eye on her weight and check her teeth.
Hamsters eat very little but you can supplement with a little porridge or scrambled egg (no salt or fat).

You could also scatter feed half of her mix. Hamsters like foraging for their food.
