"I googled 'hamster surgery Singapore', the young lady of around late 30s and her husband came to Toa Payoh Vets. She told me that the hamster was 2 years and 6 months old but later said the real age was 1 year and 9 months. .
After surgery, she recalled that she was 1 year and 9 months old. A lot of difference for dwarf hamsters whose life span is 2.5 to 3 years.
Electro-surgery. Big nasty tumour, as in the pet mouse operated yesterday by me. 4/0 stitches.
Right-hind tumour in a pet mouse and hamster were the same medical condition but two of a kind.
The hamster went home to a happy couple. There was another tumour under the right arm pit. Will need to operate 2 to 4 weeks later before it grows gigantic and prevented movement. Biting off stitches is likely.
This hamster has arthritis joints (see video). A rare condition of arthritis seen by me as I had not seen arthrititic joints in over 1000 dwarf hamster consultations.
A pet mouse had similar located tumour but a gigantic one.
