Pet Questions? Ask a Vet and Get Answers ASAP
You said that this lump in in the area of the stomach. This sound like a scent gland tumor, an abscess or even constipation which can cause a bloat in the abdomen area. For tonight you can try getting her to drink some pedialyte from an eye dropper to keep her from dehydrating and you can also try to give her some plain yogurt to see if she will eat . Tomorrow you will want to see a Vet. that will treat exotics and Pocket Pets for an explicit diagnosis. Please update me after you see the Vet. Joan Jav917
Have you noticed any bleeding from the vaginal area? There is one last thing I have come up with. If your hammie has not been bred this is possibly an ovarian cyst. this would also need to be addressed with a Vet. Joan Jav917
This sounds more like an abscess with what you have just told me. This again can be treated by the Vet. with lancing, cleaning and an antibiotic. Try the yogurt and the pedialyte and see the Vet. ASAP. I hope with the fluid and the yogurt should give her some further energy until you see the Vet. Joan Jav917
I wanted to see how your little one was doing? Have you gotten to the Vet?
Please let me know how the Hammie is doing. Joan Jav917
I am so glad you have seen someone and have gotten some antibiotics. You may still need to see the Vet. for further evaluation if the tumor needs to be excised. In the interim the medication is a good start to help with infection. I would recommend some Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and some plain yogurt with bifidus and acidophilus along with the regular food. These supplements offer a great deal of vitamins and nutrients that I have found very successful in treating ailing animals. They will also help with increasing appetite in an animal who has been ill. I would use betadine and peroxide before using the neosporin.Please keep me updated on the progress.
I want to let you know Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen can be gotten at any Healthfood store and I consider them a great natural healer! Joan Jav917
You can dust her food with the open capsules of the Bee Pollen and Rayal Jelly or you can mix them in some yogurt. I would start immediately! With the antibiotics and the supplements she should be able to hang on. I consider the Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly two of nature's most perfect supplements. Joan Jav917
