    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me any idea about what's going on with my hamster currently, I can try and give the best description and symptoms possible - I know most people will suggest seeing a vet but that's not an option due to current financial situation.

    So over the past couple of days I've noticed a lot of blood spotted around her cage, it's been coming from her back passage, I've noticed blood in areas where she usually urinates, blood on wood shavings, and basically anywhere else she's been walking around. I don't know whether to wait it out or have her put down, she doesn't seem like she's in pain and is her usual self but I want what's best for her at the end of the day.

    She's coming up to her 2nd birthday

    This could be a urine infection, or pyometra. She needs to see a vet tomorrow. There's no way round it I'm afraid. See if someone can lend you the money?

    Vet tomorrow.

    Creating a Poll on whether to pts an animal is rather odd :(
