Hmmm...I could imagine how this could be scary for you. Try and stay calm. Sometimes this happens with pets and you just have to let it take its course; and whatever happens, happens. My cat had something like that twice, although her eyes kept moving around and she couldn't walk, and she was acting very weird; we think she was having a stroke. If it was a stroke, she survived two of them and she's very healthy to this day. Pets may surprise you; just stay by your hamster, keep food and water in his/her cage but you should leave him alone and let whatever is happening pass; hopefully he will be okay! Please update us when you can, and good luck!!

Call the vet!! Or take him to the vet! This could be serious. Give him some water, check his food and cage to make sure there's nothing harmful in there- it may've been something he ate. On that note, take him out of his cage and put him on a towel or a blanket. Wrap him up (make sure he can breathe! His head should be sticking out of the towel/blanket) and take him to the vet ASAP- as soon as possible!! I'm not a hamster expert (never had one... only fish ), but this sounds really serious. Just keep him warm, give him something to eat/drink, and check his cage for any dangerous objects (the problem could be he may have eaten something bad, or eaten something that was not food, or simply gotten too much sunlight, even)
So, yes! Take him to the vet right now! They'll know what to do there. (Or at least ask your mom or dad about it- they may know a bit more about hamsters than you do. Or maybe not. I dunno, that's just my advice!)

Aww...well, he might not have the energy to walk right now so try and keep him in your arms or, as bluski said, in a blanket where he is still breathing. Try calling a vet and seeing what they can do to help. If all else fails, just pray for him (I know I will tonight!) and let him rest in his cage near food and water. Who knows?; he might be fine tomorrow!

Right hes on a heated blanket(not too hot but not too cold) and my mom and dad arent home so we cant take him to the vet! It looks like he is having a even harder time breathing now. we just brought him some water. my sister phoned her friend and asked her but its not much help. I reall dont want him to die!

Update: he's cold, eyes are closed, short, fast breathes, trying to move but failing, I dont know if this is part of his illness, but something is wrong with his back foot. the left one. I found him in the middle of his cage crawling out on his back.

oh and I dont know if this helps but he is about 2 or 3 years old

Default Re: PLease help! I think my hamster is going to die!!!

hamsters useally live to 2-3 yeyars.... i had a hamster, who right before he died, got constipated. he was so backed up, a lump formed on his side, and he could barely move. His eyes crusted up, and didnt open too, which also happened to my friends hamster.
i learned to just love them extra, if it is still eating, give him lots of treats, and just let him know you love him. * i am crying as i right this* i know it is hard, trust me, i know, but now i know that it was his time to go, and that he is in a better place now.

Ohmygoodness, I am so sorry! This happened to my little hamster Phoebe, she had a stroke )=
How old is this hamster?
Now, as much as you may not like this, and as hard as it may be, you need to prepare for the worst )=
You might try talking with your parents, maybe they could take him to a vet, though with hamsters being so small, there may not be very much they can do...Just keep him warm(maybe hold him with a towel or rag?)

another update: hes not moving much but he tires to walk but fails. his back leg seems hurt, but he now seems very hot. I'm really scared that he might die. he is still having very short,fast breaths and hes not sheeding or anything and hes not hungry or wanting water. We're trying to make him comfertable but he looks very sick and Im really scared!
