5002. A Syrian hamster has a swollen face - haematoma

April 7, 2018
An unusual case. A needle aspiration proved that the swelling contained fresh red blood, likely due to a traumatic injury to the right side of the face.

The blood was expressed out on Apr 5, 2018 (see video). However, the bleeding continued overnight and the swelling is seen the next day. The swelling is smaller but the hamster needed to be inpatient for oral medication of antibiotics and painkillers.
