566. Do you love your hamster, warts and all?

How to educate hamster owners that they should get the vet to excise the hamster's warts when they are very small? When the warts are small, they don't bleed profusely. Big warts command a large blood supply and as you can see in this case, with images presented, the bleeding was a lot in the wart excised from the hind limb.








Unlike dogs and cats, it was practically not possible to ligate the bleeder since the blood vessels were not visible. The good news is that this hamster survived the operation.

If you love your hamster, get her warts removed by your vet early.
