    Well I think I've already posted about this... but i finally have video evidence! (Every time i try to film him sneezing he stops :D)

    YouTube - Sausage sneezing

    Does anyone elses hamster sneeze like this or is Sausage just weird? I'm fairly sure he's not ill or anything as he's done this pretty much since we got him 5 or 6 months ago... I think I might have set him off this time as I had him on my lap/in my hands and I had just washed my hands so maybe they were too soapy smelling for him... maybe I just have a hamster who is very allergic to everything! :D

    haha that made me laugh,

    may have heard it once or twice with mine but NEVER that much and that loud.

    maybe he is just allergic to lots of strong smelling things

    That voice over film is the funniest thing I have seen in ages, I actually laughed so hard I cried. You have to do a thread with that film on.

    Is that actually your hamster sneezing? He doesn't sound very healthy, I think I'd take him to the vet. Have you ever found blood in his cage? Does he chew bars? My hamster William made that noise when he had a very serious nose bleed.

    He has sneezed pretty much since we got him, i know it doesn't sound very healthy but he is otherwise ok! I think he might be allergic to sawdust but I'm not sure - I keep changing his bedding/sawdust etc but nothing seems to stop the sneezes!

    I've never found blood in his cage and he does sometimes chew bars but hasn't since i changed his cage layout.

    I have thought about taking him to the vet but as he has done it for ages and still seems fine I don't know if that would be being paranoid. He's also been scratching recently and I'm not sure if he might have mites so he might be going to the vet soon anyway!

    Yeah i thought he had stopped but he hadn't! He seems to be cleaning a lot as well. My mum said she thinks he's itchy because its hot but does that actually make sense...?

    Is there any way of telling if its mites apart from the scratching because he could still be allergic to something as he sneezes as well... is there any alternative to sawdust and wood shavings that I could maybe use?
