    Somebody pls help! My hamster's teeth has overgrown and has clashed with each other to the point where the top teeth had to curve inside! She keeps cleaning her mouth and has slimmed down a lot. Will a chewing toy help now? Is it a must to bring it to a vet? I'm scared and concerned please help

    You need to see a vet asap. Your hamster will be in pain, and unable to eat. Please don't delay.

    No, there is not any other way. As a pet owner, it is a legal and moral obligation to provide veterinary care when an animal is in need.

    If you are struggling financially, then contact the PDSA, but please do not delay as your hamster is already in pain ref teeth.
