Q: Hamster

July 25, 2011 | By GuineaPig | 2 answers | Expired: 1237 days ago


My 6 month old Campbells Dwarf Hamster used to run on his wheel all the time. Lately, he isnt running on it like he used to. He also wont open his eyes even if hes awake. Otherwise, he is perfectly healthy. I am wondering if maybe he is blind since he does have red eyes and acts as if he cant see sometimes? Ideas?

Have him checked out by your vet. They'll be able to tell you.

Maybe he has an eye infection like conjunctivitis? A vet exam is in order!
