crys Edge gave me scare!

If some of you dont know/remember Edge is my hamster.

This morning I got him out of his cage to play with him (he was sleeping as usual) and he could barely walk and he was all wobly, he'd stop and just stand there and fall over! I thought I was gonna lose him He wouldnt act normal! My parents kept accusing me of starving him! I WOULD NEVER STARVE HIM, EVER! But, I just now got him out to see if he was better, and he is, he's walkin normal and tryin to run away like he usualy does

But I don't know what was wrong with him I hope it was nothing serious, and it doesn't happen again. He scared me so bad, I about started cryin

My goldfish is also an Edge



I'm glad his American hamster counterpart is doing ok, 'cos you know, if you're starving him, i'll be sending the goldfish your way to have words...

Scurvy maybe? I honestly know nothing of hamsters/gerbils but I know a good deal about guinea pigs. Guinea pig food is often made a lot like rabbit food, but guinea pigs require different nutrition and often don't get enough vitamin C with low price guinea pig food. Once my Sami's back leg just stopped working and she was walking all funny. In GPs, losing function of a hind limp is usually the first sign of scurvy (a vitamin C difficiency disease that can become fatal). Apparently her food was NOT high quality enough and she was basically being "starved" even though I fed her the right amount every day. To treat her I got kids chewable Vitamin C pills, smashed them into powder, mixed it with orange juice, and fed it to her as a treat with a 1 cc syringe. She perked up within a day or two and to keep them healthy, I gave them as many carrots as they wanted, plenty of timothy hay, and a dose of vitamin C every few months (often crushed into power and sprinkled on the food).

he may have had a mild stroke. our rabbit was not walking or moving much one day, he could hardly stand, but the next day he was fine. vet said he may have had a mild stroke.

Yea well my dad refuses to take "unimportant" pets to a vet... and Edge may be unimportant to my dad but he's majorly important to me

Did you just wake him up?
And how old is he?

(I've had many hamsters - they're so cute)

Sometimes they can be a lil odd if they've just woke up (stumbly, disoriented)
And 1.5 isn't that old yet, I've had a few make it to 5. most at least make it to 3 and a bit.

Well, I hope Edge lives to be 5! lol! I wish he would live forever though
I'm hoping to get a new hamster soon, seeming I have another cage that's not in use... can you guess what I'm gonna name him?! I was gonna get a girl and name it Morleigh... but I've changed my mind.
