Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Valentina and I am writing from Italy. I have a one-year-old dwarf male hamster and he has got a problem; I only realized it yesterday. I follow from here all your surgery cases and your successes, the photos and the articles on the web site, so I thought it was better to write down a line to have an advice from you, because you are experts and I admire your job.


This is my first hamster and I do not what to do, really, I am desperate, because so far we had any kind of problems. The problem is related to its lower area of the body, and it's like an abscess or a tumor or something like that because it is a hard distended underskin lump near the penus.




Here in Italy the vets are closed on saturday and sunday so I medicated it as I could on my own, doing some chamomile hot packs.


Do you think he probably will go through a surgery? What am I supposed to do? Please help me, I'm sending you some photos. Talking about the hamster, he is acting as normal, it is not weak, he plays, eats, sleeps.... Thanks a lot, you really do not know how important is to me if you answer back. Sorry to bother you.

Your sincerely,
Valentina C.

Thank you for your email. It is hard to see from your 2 images what is the affected area you mentioned. It is best to consult your vet.
