Awww, that was so sweet of you Ria! That looks amazing, and the baby corn candles were brilliant. He had to have loved it, that's a hamster's dream right there.

Happy birthday to your little sweetie!

I'm trying to decide whether to get Rodney checked by the vet or not.

He's currently running on the big flying saucer on the floor and fine once he gets going. He's a bit senile and forgets his routine sometimes which must be confusing for an organized hamster like Rodney.

What concerns me is that his poops are quite smelly and have been for a while. They are still shaped but some are a little softer and lighter in colour.

At his age i wouldn't put him through invasive tests but i also wonder if it would be worth the stress of putting him through a course of antibiotics to rule out a bowel infection or would it be better to just keep him on Metacam.

I guess that i need to take him to the vet to get a professional opinion but thought i'd bounce it off people here in case someone has had this issue with an elderly hamster before and would be willing to share the outcome.
