Hamster Emergency

April 18, 2008 at 4:20 pm 6 comments

Well, I haven’t posted in a while. Why? I’ve been sick. SPRING IS EVIL, I TELL YOU! I came down with a sinus infection, and the fact that pollen’s everywhere these days didn’t really ease my suffering. However, I’m a lot better now, for the most part.
Anyways, today I woke up to find something rather odd. My Campbell’s dwarf hamster, Binky, was shaking like crazy and could barely walk. We did some research, called the vet, and observed him more, and we’ve concluded he’s got diabetes. He does drink and urinate a lot, and shaking is a symptom, and his breed of hamster is commonly effected. I was crying my eyes out- he was in awful shape. He’s doing better now, though. He’s walking around, not shaking as much, and is getting back to his normal self. But we’re not out of the woods yet.
I’m really attached to the little guy, if you haven’t noticed (I’m a huge hamster fanatic). So please send your thoughts and prayers his way- I hate seeing him suffer. Thanks a bunch, everyone. Binky’s my baby, and I’d hate to lose him.

    Oh my gosh! I really hope he gets better! 😮 He probably will, though. Unfortunately my little hammy Cinnamon passed away two years ago in the spring time, and he was only four months old. I think he choked on something that he had in his cheek pouches.

    I’m saying a little prayer to Binky in hopes he gets better. It’s so awful when a pet is ill and you aren’t sure whether or not they’re going to live. But from what I read here, Binky sounds as if he’s going to be just fine.

    Thanks, everybody.

    Stel, I’m VERY sorry about your loss. Losing a pet is not easy. Thanks a bunch for your prayers! I’m really happy to say Binky is a lot better now. 🙂
