10 mo old Syrian hamster, was active this am, now lethargic

Customer Question

10 mo old Syrian hamster, was active this am, now lethargic and eyes closed. Mouth full of food.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the Syrian hamster. What is the Syrian hamster's name and age?
Customer: Fluffy. About 10 months old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fluffy?
Customer: Has been a normal hamster
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
