So, 2 weeks ago I was at the emergency vets with my Syrian, Dave. Turns out he had a cold & was prescribed with 5 days of antibiotics & was given an anti-inflammatory. He started improving & it was like he became his normal self again. He had a checkup on the following Saturday & the vet was pleased to see he was doing great. However, a few days after the checkup he began to wheeze & sneeze again. So, I gave the vets a call & they extended his antibiotics for another 5 days. This time, I’ve seen no improvement at all in the poor lad. I’m suspecting that he’s getting old now as he’s 2 years old, he’s hobbling around his cage but still eating & drinking, also nibbling at the treats I give him for his immune system. Despite him eating & drinking, I feel like he’s just suffering each day. The clicking, wheezing & sneezing just isn’t getting any better for him & I don’t want to keep him here suffering as it really isn’t fair. I’ve noticed his weight is dropping & he weighed 120/130g when the vet weighed him 2 weeks ago. I know hamsters don’t live long & they age a lot faster than us, but I’m just not comfortable with him living his last however many days miserable. I’ve been keeping an eye on him & I know he’s been annoyed with the syringes in his face (which caused him to bite me hard), I’m just running out of options now, is it time for my baby to move on?
