Hamster Vet

Hamster Veterinarian Serving Akron, Barberton & Wadsworth OH

We are a full service hamster vet clinic providing care, diagnosis, and treatment. Hamsters make cute and playful pets. The most commonly kept are golden hamsters, dwarf hamsters and teddy bear hamsters. They are popular as pets for children and adults alike. Usually, hamsters don’t display signs of illness until they are very sick, so it’s important to contact us when you notice a change in behavior. Common signs of illness to look out for include:

  • Runny Nose
  • Matted or Greasy Fur
  • Diarrhea
  • Shaking
  • Lack of Eating & Drinking
  • Bulging or Dull Looking Eyes
  • Bloated Abdomen
  • Labored or Rapid Breathing
  • Coughing/Sneezing
  • Hair Loss

 In order to keep your hamster healthy and happy, We provide the following veterinary services:

Hamster Wellness Exams

As part of your hamsters wellness examinations, we’ll consult with you about your concerns and discuss specific needs of your hamster such as diet. We will visually examine teeth, ears, eyes, mouth, and skin for signs of illness. If we find anything abnormal, we may recommend testing to diagnose possible illness.

Hamster Diagnostic, Therapeutic, Surgical Procedures

Hamsters get problems. We have solutions. We utilize the most up-to-date techniques available to resolve your pet’s problems. Bloodwork, radiographs, ultrasound, and endoscopy are just a few of the diagnostic means available to aid with your pet’s diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is made, we offer a full range of therapeutic and surgical options to correct the problem.

Hamster Parasite Control

Hamsters can get internal and external parasites including tapeworms, fleas, ticks, ringworms and mites. These pests cause discomfort and may lead to serious illness. We offer parasite control to keep your hamster pest free.
