    I have no idea where to put this thread, so please feel free to move it etc

    Well this may sound really strange but I have a hamster and today he's not been able to open his eyes and he hasn't been eating either but he has been drinking but he's still moving about. I don't know what to do, whether to take him to the vets or just wait a bit longer? I tried searching the problem on google but I can't find anything! He is nearly 2 so he's getting on a bit but he means the world to me would be grateful if somebody could reply thankyou :)

    Sounds like old age has caught up with him :(
    I think you might need to brace yourself for loss.

    I am sorry Angel - smaller animals like hamsters have relatively short life spans, and there is seldom anything vets can do- keep him/het comfy and hope for th ebest but not much else can be done that I am aware of. It is sad and hard though with any pet :hug:

    I tried wiping his eyes with some cotton wool and he has one eye open! Hopefully he is a strong hammy and will pull through and get better :) fingers crossed!

    Make sure he is able to drink as little guys can get dehydrated fast.

    He's doing brilliantly, I got him a new hut and he's settling into it brilliantly! And he's perked up loads!
