    Hello, I've had my hamster about 7 month ans shes about 10-11 month now, i took her out last night to put her in her ball and change her bedding etc. i noticed one of her eyes looks like the fur around it was damp/wet, maybe a little red too?. She has also started sneezing as i haven't used any different bedding,flooring or food i think she may have a cold? any one know if this is right, but i'm going to have another look when i get home today and get a vet appointment

    I don't know anything about hamster health, but you're doing the right thing making a vet appointment. Hope she's okay. x

    What bedding are you using if you don't mind me asking?

    Could she have poked her eye on anything?

    Please let us know how she gets on
