    Help - Hamster eye infection

    My hamster has a scab across his eye. Looks really nasty.

    Does anyone know what I should do?

    Obviously can't take him to a vet until Monday.

    Doesn't seem to be in pain, but can't really be sure.

    Not sure if you can do it with a hamster but when my cat gets a bad eye i make tea (without milk) and bathe the eye. Hope he is ok

    Seeking advice from randoms on an internet forum will more than likely do more harm then good when it comes to health matters be it animal or human

    It's covering the whole of the eye, so no.

    hi try bathing th eye in warm water with a cotton ball but try and call an emergency vet to see what they say

    The hamster will need a course of Abs and depending on the severity, maybe eye drops. Don't do anything without seeing a vet first, not even simple things like bathing the scab.

    Yeah this thread reminded me, I checked on mine too, It's dead Looked a bit thin, been a few weeks since i looked at it. Ah well, think i'm gonna by a jack russell tommorow.

    snailman are you saying you having checked or held your hamster for a few weeks if this is true i seriously think you should rethink the idea of getting a jack russell due to the fact that if you cant look after a hamster you are no way capable of looking after a dog
