Default Sick Tassen

Tassen have ben at the vet twice. First time she did get antibiotics. She did not get better, and second time we did take pictures of her, and the vet found a dark spot at her lung. I did get more antibiotics to try 10 more days. She does not run in her wheel, are less active then before.
The vet told me that she think I should let Tassen go, if she not does get any better, and the sound she makes does not go away.

Its sad.

This is very sad. I'm so sorry.
If Tassen is starting to suffer then letting her go would be the kindest option.
You've done your best and that's all we can do.

Thank you. I noticed a weird sound from her breathing system. The picture did show a dark spot. I heard the sound last night, and she is on antibiotics 3 more days. If the sond/her condition does not ger better (running in wheel), she might be put to sleep. I`m insecure on what to do if the sound goes completely away, but she does not run in her wheel.

I wouldn't worry about the wheel should she get better. Some hamsters stop running or rarely use their wheels when they get old or sick. If Tassen can't breath properly then she won't feel like using her wheel.

I have my hamsters put to sleep when i believe that they are in pain and suffering or they had a scan that shows tumors and no hope of getting better knowing they'd only get worse.

It's a very difficult decision and you need to think of what is the best thing to do for your hamster. Did she get better since she's been on antibiotics this time?

No, she has not. She does still make the same sound sometimes.
