Your hamster is important to you, and you want to make sure you are able to care for him no matter how he is feeling. This will mean addressing his needs when he is well in addition to when he is sick.
If you think your hamster may be feeling under the weather, take the time to determine what aspects of his life are being impacted. This may be as simple as monitoring his eating or elimination habits, but it could also be a bit more complicated. Because your pet may experience changes in his behavior, he may be acting a bit differently than he usually does. This usually means he needs to rest more, so take note if your hamster seems particularly lethargic. He may also show little interest in activities that typically excite him.
