    hiya,

    I am thinking about taking my little hammie to the vets as ive noticed his teeth are quite long, he still eats fine and there are LOADS of chewy things in his cage for him but i just think maybe they are getting a bit too long i have had him for about 1 year now and ive read online about hamsters not being able to eat because they are too long but i would like to prevent this by getting them trimmed/shaved early.....any ideas on this ? or any tips to get the teeth down?:confused::confused:

    thanks

    Katie xx

    Hiya unless his teeth seem to be sticking out his mouth or indeed if he seems to be off his food, then I wouldn't worry. Hamster teeth are extremely long considering the size of them!! It's the reason why a hamster bite can be much more painful than other small animals!!
