That is good to know. I used to use one that was a powder sprinkled on food. They loved the taste.

I used the Benebac powder one but it seems hard to find since the pandemic. I have a tub of it hardly used. I could send you some if you like. Only thing is the best before date is 2020! I think it's probably ok though - I would still use it. Best before isn't the same as "use by" and it's just probiotic powder. Main issue might be it might have lost effectiveness.

That is a shame. Can hamsters use pro C antibiotics?

Thank you for the offer but i can use the Dr S in the meantime. Could you post a photo of the Benebac please so i know which one to look out for?
I meant to ask the vet but forgot when she phoned yesterday. I'll drop by the animal hospital tomorrow to see what they have in their little shop.

This is one I used to use. It says it can be used for rodents so perhaps hamsters can use it.

Thank you for the link cloudy.

Rodney has an evening routine now. When he wants out, i put him down in the playground. He has a quick sniff around and then heads for the kitchen door where he starts his evening stroll (that stuck, cloudy). He follows the same route and turns left to the lounge, has a wash behind the big chair, then walks along the wall and hangs around behind the curtains before making his way back to the kitchen. Tonight he found a cornflake and ate it. And then he goes back to the playground to run on the wheels until he gets tired and climbs on me to get put back in his cage.

He tried to climb the wine rack tonight but fell off the Merlot.

Rodney only wants out once in the evening now and then goes back to sleep but he really seems to enjoy his little stroll and a few rounds on the wheels.

How wonderful to have all that space for Rodney to free range in.
