Over 80% of the Singapore residents live in high rise apartments. Hamsters are favoured as pets as they occupy little space.
This hamster has a fast-growing purplish tumour around 5 mm x 4 mm x 4 mm. The owner was very worried.
"No vet can guarantee that there is no anaesthetic risk of death," I told the couple. The wife wanted a guarantee before surgery.
The hamster recovered from anaesthesia and goes home on the same day.
