The bottle is fixed to the tank Special hole for it - but I take the point. Main thing was trying to avoid his sides rubbing against anything so it needed plenty of space between items.

So conclusions - I am not sure there is an ideal size for a hospital cage/tank! I think anything larger and he would have been far too active and damaging his wound/pulling his stitches. But smaller like the duna multy he spends a lot of time hanging from the roof bars trying to escape - also a bit active for his wound and stitches. But we're on day 3 now so hopefully the wound will be a bit more secure now. I think he'd be trying to escape whatever hospital cage he was in because it's unfamiliar and no wheel. Seems a bit mean limiting his movement in the smaller cage but it's for his own good in the long run!

I let him out each night but even then he's a bit too active (more so than usual) and being a bit gung ho around his wound area.

So it's hard work with a post-op hamster! Hopefully by his post op check after 5 days he can have his wheel back and be safe around regular cage contents.

I'm glad that Pickle is doing so well and thank you for the info.

If ever i need a hospital cage i'll make one. 64l rub but no meshed lid so no swinging off the ceiling. Two meshed windows and two meshed vents instead and fairly high up.....but would a hamster try to climb on the windows?

Hmm, maybe there is no such thing as an ideal hospital cage because hamsters are difficult patients.

I think maybe a bin like that with just no lid and no mesh would be good - as long as it's high enough!

Yes, the 84l rub could work.
