Do Hamsters Shed

Some pets, like cats and dogs, can cause real problems because they shed all the time. Do smaller animals, like hamsters, shed?

Most hamsters do shed a little bit, but you may not notice that your pet his losing some of his hair. Like other animals, hamsters will shed and regrow their hair when the temperature changes, but because hamsters are so small and they don’t have a lot of hair to begin with, you may not even notice.

Unfortunately, there are some medical reasons why your hamster might be losing his hair. If your hamster has an allergy, he’ll lose more hair than he should. As a hamster ages, he may lose more hair than normal as well.

To make sure your hamster’s hair loss is healthy; you should schedule an appointment with your professional veterinary clinic Aurora CO.
