Customer Question
My hamster is swollen...

My hamster is swollen up like a balloon. She fell from her cage and we took her to the vet yesterday x-ray showed no fractures bruising on the abdomen possible hemorrhage but now she just looks like a balloon and cries when we go near her

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the hamster's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** about a year-and-a-half old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Violet?

1 1/2 yrs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Violet?

Guess what I said about her falling out of the cage negative x-ray for fractures possible abdominal hemorrhage. She did eat and drink a little bit yesterday when we woke up today she was swollen all over
