IS MY HAMSTER DYING??

HE IS 2 YEARS 24 MONTHS HIS RIGHT HIP AREA IS GOING BALD AND HIS ONE EYE WONT OPEN IS HE OK
Sounds like Dyinghamsteritis. It's terminal.
He is probably ok.
Although when a Hamsters eye cannot instigate, this could mean that he has fluid coming out of his eyes. When this happens it normally mean that he is sick. This could occur from:

* Excessive Moisture in the enclose
*Irritation to the eyes such as: too dusty of wood chips/sawdust/bedding
*Or maybe this is from getting poked be a sharp object

Maybe if you answer these cross-examine for me I can help you a little bit more:


Does you Hamster have goey stuff around his eyes, and this is what is cause it to be hard to open?
Or is he just inept to open them?

And last, does his skin where his tresses is falling out look irritated (red) or does it look normal (light pink)?

This will help me to understand what is taking place to you Hamster so I can help you a little bit more!! :)
(Hope this helped!!)

Call the petstore if you can't afford a vet and ask them.
this hapened to me a couple of days ago, he died some how, but he was throwing up and his left eye was shut, my mom didnt permit me go to the vet either but my hamster didnt even live a year in his duration anyway your hamster...

but make his last days his best YEA!
yeah that happend to mine, he actually lasted another 6 months but he was also be like a super hamster he lived to 5 years old, usally live to like 2 1/2 to 3 years, so he is surrounded by his way but you got a little will.
uh dont you be going to like 3 years old?

sounds like hes giving out, better pinch him to the vet
I'm sorry to hear that but yea. 2 years is the average time for a hamster to live. If he is getting old then all you can do is generate him comfertable. The vets can do nothing for old age.
I THINK HE IS ON HIS WAY OUT TO DYING! TAKE MY ADVICE AND ADMIRE THIS CONFECTION: TAKE HIM TO PETS AT HOME NOW!...
My hamster go a bit bald on his head a couple of months later ( i meditate he had a stoke of old age) he died i was sooo wounded if not take him to the vet.

he was 3 and a partly xxxx
This happened to my hamster a few years ago. If he starts shaking when he walks it wont be much longer, im sorry to tell you this. And whether you take it to the vet they are just going to tell you that he is antiquated and he is going to pass on soon. Im sorry about your hamster, but they cant live forever. Its time to let be in motion. Im extremely sorry. ):
take him to the vet, 3 years is a long time for a hamster, sry

sorry to hear your pet is ill.

hamsters dont live very long at all, and i remember the ones i have not living much past two years..some did get the 'wet tail' disease which make their tail look wet and the eyes seal shut.
2 years is old for a hamster. They dont regularly live much longer than that. Take him to a vet. The bald patch might be caused by a parasite.
I dont think this is a question that is going to be answered as best as you would approaching on the net. You should go see a vet.
No he is not dying but might. He is having continuous seizures. You must pilfer him to the vet before it is too late.
Um near is a CHANCE he is dying. I think it would be a great time to look into getting another hamster. He is probably going bald on his hip because he probably has some skin problems. He probably wont interested his eye because its either infected or irritated. Just take him to the vet or the pet store for a check up. They should help you out.
Good luck and hope i help :)
he's fine. if he suddenly falls to the ground and stops responding and looks inert, he's probably sleeping.
Probably, 2 years is totally old for a hamster. Especially if it is a dwarf. I'm sorry. A vet can't do anything to help. Just engender sure he is comfortable and has food and water .
TAKE HIM TO THE VET!! IF HIS EYE WONT OPEN OF COURSE HE IS SICK
whether your mom won't want you to take him to the vet then call your vet and tel them whether whats wrong with your hamster and the pass the phone to your mom so she could know that your hamster is sick and you could go lift him.
he may dye and wow that sounds so gross or he may be sick i would take him to the vet but i own no comment
Yeah hun your hamster is gonna go bye bye now! If youre having a thorny time with the loss just let me know ok?
he could be or he could just be sick take him to the vet
awwwwww poor thing. that is so sad. im sorry but it is probably going to overrun away. cry cry.
I DON'T KNOW
TAKE HIM TO THE VET'S
AND THERE'S NO NEED TO SHOUT
Answers:    Check to see if your hamster has "mites". That's exactly what happen to my hamster a few years ago. He started losing his fur and he was acting very odd. His eye is probably stuck shut near eye goobers..just the other day my hamster wasn't opening his eye so I fixed to let it be. A few days later, when it still wasn't opening, I showery it with water, wiped the excess river off with a paper towel, and slowly pulled his upper and lower eyelid apart, and found his eye to be only fine. Research mites on the internet, because this may be what your hamster has. Mites are little bugs that go deep into the fur of a small animal and irritate and bite the skin. This normally causes fur loss and/or scabs or sores. I hope this helped and your hamster gets better soon! :)
so techniquicly hes 4 years outmoded. and idk maybe you should go to the vet/
