One of the worst cases of hamster tumours. This hamster has a very smelly skin lump. The smell wafted from the hamster to my nose in the consultation room. "Need to give antibiotics and clean up for 3 days before operation," I advised the owner. "Rushing in now will mean that the hamster is exposed to high risk of death from or after operation." The owner agreed to wait for surgery after 3 days of antibiotics.
Smelly gangrenous half had broken away. (video). Surgery to remove the other part is done. The hamster recovers and is OK by Day 3
