Looking for a Healthy Hamster at the Pet Store

Looking for a Healthy Hamster at the Pet Store

A sick or slightly unhealthy hamster can pose some challenges for new pet parents, especially if they require veterinary care. To make your life easier, you should look for a healthy hamster at the pet store when deciding which one you should bring home.

There are obvious things to look for. The eyes, nose, and ears should be clean. If there's discharge, you should look at the other hamsters.

A healthy hamster should be bright and curious. If it's not nap time, the critter shouldn't be lethargic. There should be no sign of limping or stiffness either.

Where the hamster is living can be a good sign of his health too. A clean cage with plenty to eat, drink, and chew on is a good indication that the hamster is being well cared for.

No matter which hamster you choose, make sure you schedule an appointment with your vet Upper Arlington, OH when you bring him home. Visit their site for additional information.
