Customer Question

My hamster has been showing signs he is lethargic and not eating. I just put his favorite fruit in his cage and he is not eating it which is unusual for him. He also was making a noise similar I believe to coughing.

Hi Jamie, thanks for your question.

Do you happen to have a video of the coughing fits you're hearing?

How long has the lethargy and not eating been going on?
