Customer Question

I have a hamster who is wobbling, her eyes were shut with crusty, and she is hunched over. She just ate some pieces of strawberry and has had some water. I'm wondering what might be going on with her.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the hamster will be able to digest that. What is the hamster's name and age?
Customer: Her name is ***** ***** I think she's about 1 1/2.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gizmo?
Customer: She was fine 2 days ago and all of a sudden looks thin and has a dull coat.

1) How long have you had her?
2) Can you share pictures of her eyes?
3) Any discharge from her nose yet?
4) Has she eaten anything aside from a strawberry?
