Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in small animals and exotics. The first thing to do is use some Pedialyte mixed 50/50 with water and syringe feed. Next please give the hamster a piece of toast this will usually help a bit with loose stools. For actual feeding I suggest grinding the pellets and mix with the Pedialyte mixture and syringe feed until you can get some Critical Care for herbivores. You can also give a little dab of canned pumpkin not pie filling to help make the stools solid. Wet tail is not a disease but actually a sign something is wrong and it is usually a bacterial infection. I do suggest the hamster be seen by an Exotic Vet to be treated properly. The last thing I suggest is a Pro Biotic like BeneBac that can be gotten at most pet supplies to help with the gut flora. Please let me knw if you have further questions.
