What's wrong next to my hamster?
I got my syrian hamster, Yogie, about 2-3 months ago i guess, and he's been immaculately healthy. When i got him, he had a scab on his support and his ear was torn in half, but not bleeding. Both of those hold healed nicely and have not bothered him at adjectives. (the pet store had like 20 hamsters in like cage)
Anyway, currently he is sleeping(like usual) and he started making these strange wimpering sounds like 20 minutes ago, and he's still making them. It's kinda like a dog whining at the door or something.he's curled up in a bubble, but that's how he usually sleeps.
Now he's awake, and he's still making those sounds. Is he ok, or is there a problem?
Take him to the vet... and have him check it out. It could be a disease or something.If it still make that sound later. Then call the vet again.
If thats not the case I recommend taking it to a vet.
