Helloooo people !
This will be quite a short blog, sorry peeps
Hope you have all had a great weekend and your little hamsters have been behaving themselves, no escaping, no stealing your remote control car and whizzing away?
No..ah..good, but now I’m worrying myself that hamsters may take over the world..
Oh jeez…the poop…it would be everywhere!
No….just…I’m stopping now……
So recently I have been keeping a close eye on my little Cookie, as she has not been well.
On Friday evening I noticed some strange colouring on the area where she pees. I took a closer look as I was a bit worried, unfortunately it was blood.
So, my hamster was peeing blood! I called the vet and got her in that evening. He was holding her and looked at me and seriously said the most hilarious sentence you can say to a person who has a hamster “do you think you could hold her still for a minute or so“ ….I must admit…I laughed so hard.
I got told, it is either a UTI ( urinary tract infection ) or because she maybe older than we think, it could be a womb issue, so I was given the choice of either investigation or antibiotics. I chose antibiotics because if in the time of her having it, it got worse, she would go straight back.
But right now it seems to be clearing, each day the red colour is less and less – yaayyyyy!
So far I have not stopped laughing at her reactions to the anti b, she scrunches her nose up, sticks her tongue out, teeth together…. looks like a child sucking on a lemon!
It is such a hilarious face for such a little Cookie.
Even when she’s in her cage after the meds, she refused to come near me, as much as I find it so funny, I wish she knew it was all to help her 🙂
Have a good week peeps,
Cookie and Hayley
We love keeping up to date with Cookie and Hayley – Banjo loves sniffing the screen when I am typing too!
We just thought we would add a little note on the end of this post to say how quickly all you hammy-mummy and daddy’s need to react when you see blood in their pee or on their bums.
Hayley did the totally correct thing by going straight to the vets!
Eve suffered with a womb infection from having her babies (read about it here) and the antibiotics weren’t successful and I will always wonder if I had acted quicker if she would have made it!
