Customer Question
My daughters robo hamster...

My daughters robo hamster is breathing but not moving.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the hamster. What is the hamster's name and age?

Bear, and from what the pet store said around 6 months.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the hamster's name?

Bear

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bear?

He was very active last night as usual. Climbing up to the top of his cage. He appears to have had a we bowel movement and bloody nose. He can move his back legs a little but doesn’t open his eyes.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
