1143. A dwarf hamster had left upper lip tumour operation - 2 weeks later

Dec 17, 2014

I was surprised that the hamster did survive and was active as a large portion of his left upper lip with intra-lip tumour 3mm x 3mm was electro-excised by Dr Daniel 2 weeks ago.

The wife and their 2 children were concerned about the swollen right eye which happened after the upper lip tumour excision, doing self-treatment without success for last 14 days.
"Let the hamster pass away on its own without treatment' the father reiterated but the family would ignore him.

"This hamster had a few operations," he started his videoing today. "He had a toe amputated, facial tumours removed, ear canal warts and the upper lip tumour cut off by you. No Singaporean hamster owner would bother to get the dwarf hamster operated for so many conditions. Let Nature take its course and do nothing now."  

From my medical records, the following was done on this hamster aged around 2 years as at Dec 17, 2014

1. Feb 22, 2014. Left fore second digit toe abscess lanced. Five balls of right facial abscesses lanced.  Body weight 67 g. Inactive on exercise wheel.
