Has your hamster broken her leg if she is holding it up and putting it down every few steps?
Your hamster could have got a bad sprain or a bad bruise. Feel around her leg and if you feel a broken bone, bring it to the vet. Only the vet can deal with tiny broken bones. If you don't feel anything broken, then the only answer could be a sprain or bruise. The most common reason is the wheel. If it is an open-barred wheel (it has holes in it) the hamster could have tripped on one of the holes and bruised the leg. Get a closed hamster wheel and make an appointment for the vet. Just to make sure.

Thanks for the feedback!
Sometimes a temporary splint is applied, but a plaster cast will immobilize the bone better and for a longer period of time.
A Step Up Transformer is one whose secondary voltage is greater than its primary voltage. This kind of transformer "steps up" the voltage applied to it. The Step Up transfor…mer is designed to increase the voltage from the primary winding to the secondary winding. A Step-Down transformer is one whose secondary voltage is less than its primary voltage. The step down transformer is designed to reduce the voltage from the primary winding to the secondary winding. This kind of transformer "steps down" the voltage applied to it. The basic equation for stepping up or stepping down the voltage Np/Ns is known as the turns ratio. The induced voltage in the secondary winding (Vs) is in proportion to the primary voltage (Vp) and is given by the ratio of the number of turns in the secondary (Ns) to the number of turns in the primary (Np).

Usually a cast or a splint. I broke my elbow once and got a neon green cast.
Well, it may heal, but you should get some special tape (like a tiny cast for your fingers) and use that to heal the leg. Just wrap it around the leg and make sure it is loose… enough for your hamster's circulation to keep going, but tight enough for the tape (finger cast) to keep the leg steady. I would also consider you go to Petsmart and let them take a look at your hamster (Just tell them you need to speak to your hamster specialist, it is urgent). Let them take a look. If you feel uncomfortable dealing with your hamsters wound then just tell them, "Can I give you my phone number. And can you tell me when it will be healed"? A good suggestion is taking the hamster to the vet. Some say it could be 2-3 weeks, like for rats and mice. Others would suggest that unless you are willing to invest in a mechanical leg for him, it's kinder to put them down as they wont be able to do much. Anecdotes from Wiki ers with hamsters: Take your hamster to the vet! My hamster escaped in our house a few weeks ago. The combo of cats chasing him and climbing down three flights of stairs left him in quite the state of disrepair. I noticed a bruise when he was first home, and it got much worse and the leg got really swollen. Even though it's been a few weeks, the vet gave me a pain reliever/anti inflammatory medicine to help him with the pain and discomfort while the leg is healing. The person recommending euthanizing your hamster is being cruel and uninformed -- even though the vet can't give the hamster a splint or a cast, the medicines help with the pain until your hamster is back up and running!My hamster jumped out of the cage and broke its leg and it took about 1-4 weeks to heal. I'm a vet nurse. So take your hamster to the vets! We usually give a pain relief injection in the form of a NSAID. If it is a simple fracture, a quick whiff of anaesthetic gas & application of a splint (usually a match & some "elastoplast"). I have seen legs amputated if that's what the owner would like & they generally do very well. They tolerate having the skin glued with surgical glue rather than stitches to chew out! 3-4 weeks for a fracture to heal. You can even get tiny little buster collars so they can't chew the bandage! Well, TAKE HIM TO THE VET!! I know, theres probably no exotic pet vet in your area, but you need to find one. I thought my chinese dwarf hamster broke his leg, but the day I took him to the vet they said it was a tumor and it was too late to save him. He had to be put to sleep. So, my advice, take him/her to the vet right away, before it's to late. R.I.P Hamilton Scurry Wolf
step-down transformer Transformer in which the output AC voltage is less than the input AC voltage. step-up transformer Transformer in which the output AC voltage …is greater than the input AC voltage.
A step-up transformer is a transformer that receives its voltage lower than its output voltage (it 'steps-up ' the voltage). While a step-down transformer is a transformer tha…t receives the voltage higher than the output voltage, thus, stepping down the voltage. Step-up Transformer example... 120 V input, steps up to 1000 V output.
If a hamsters leg is broken it will be in extreme pain, and can damage its leg further every time it moves, as the edges of the bone will grate on each other and may cut and b…ruise the tissue around them. You will need to take it to a vet as soon as possible, and definitely within a few hours. If there is any puncturing of the skin, or signs of bleeding, take it to the vet immediately. Internal bleeding may show up as a dark swelling. Gently place the hamster in an enclosed space such as a small box where it will not be able to run around. The box should be lined on the base a smooth surface, soft if possible, that will not catch on its leg, causing it to pull and be in more pain. It will need access to water if it is there for more than an hour or so. Keeping it in a relatively dark space can help to calm the animal, and to keep it from moving too much. The vet will examine the leg and may need to X-ray and operate depending on the extent of the damage. The bones will be set, meaning they will be put into the correct alignment , and splinted so that they stay in this alignment and grow together correctly and with minimal pain. Then the hamster will need to be kept quiet while it heals. This will take some weeks. The vet will give you instructions on how to look after it during this time. If the damage is severe and unlikely to heal well, the vet may recommend amputation or euthanasia (putting the hamster to sleep). Talk with the vet to find the best option for your hamster. It will depend on how well the leg will heal and how much pain it is in. The advice below will be helpful while a hamster heals: remove it from all other hamsters remove the wheel from the cage or anything it could hurt itself on put soft wood chips on the bottom of the cage Hamster wheels with holes in them or gaps anywhere that can trap legs, can cause injuries, as can falls.
If your hamsters back legs are broken or paralysed the first thing you do is make sure they are lying on there backs so they are not straining themselves, the second thing you… do is tell a parent or carer, and don't panic it happens a lot of the time and they will properly get healed, make sure your parents or carers have rung a vet and that they are also not panicking. When the vet arrives or when you arrive at the vet let the vet do its thing and before you know it your hamster will be as good as new x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
How to find out if it has a broke legI have had hamsters all my life golden and dwarf. Most times if a hamster has a broken leg. The leg will just hang there and move very fre…ely and they will drag that leg along when they walk. It would be swollen a little i am sure. But also if it was bitten by another hamster then it would be swollen and you would see some kind of teeth marks or blood. You can't really speed up the recovery that i know of a vet would know more hope this helped some
Yes, the hamster can survive. If you are able, it is best to take it to a vet. The vet can sometimes help move the bone back into place, and give it medicine to prevent an inf…ection. If for some reason you cannot go to the vet, remove the hamster wheel from the cage for a while. Don't put it in the hamster ball until it is healed up. Make sure its food and water are within reach if it can't move around much. Don't pick it up or handle it too much. Just let it rest with as little stress as possible. They usually heal pretty quickly. Just be patient and give it plenty of TLC. Your little guy should be okay.
Your hamster will probably not walk on that leg, perhaps dragging it. Also, I had a hamster that broke her ankle, and she chewed off her foot. I brought her to the vet, and th…ey said that they could try different types of surgeries, but they can't use any anesthesia. I decided that putting her to sleep was the best choice for her, because the surgeries sounded very painful. :( Good luck, and I hope your hamster's leg isn't broken.
step up T/F increase the supply voltage while the step down transformer decrease the supply voltage
Step up transformer is used to increase the output voltage for good transmission of electricity. How it is useful to good transmission of electricity? Answer: due to inc…rease in the voltage by using step up transformer and for higher voltages we use the wires which have less area of cross section of the wires which are used do transmit the electricity........................ 'R(resistance)' propotional to (specific heat*length of the conductor)/area of cross section; So, R increases; I=V/R;(ohm's law) I decreases; so, not fully harmful. It reduces the usage of copper. Step down transformers are used for household purposes. where less voltage required than the we receiving from powerstations. Example: For ex, phone charger we receiving 230-240 volts but phone requires about 4Volts.Hence we are using stepdown transformer to decrease and maintain the voltage which is suitable for phone. I think, i'll may be helpful.
Usually refers to a transformer. A step up transformer increases the voltage and a step down decreases the voltage by an amount proportional to the ratio of the windings betwe…en Primary and Secondary. A 1:2 ratio is a step up and doubles the voltage. A 2:1 would be a step down and halve the voltage.
My son has a broken right leg and right arm cannot use crutches at all How would you get him up and down stairs safely?
This is a good problem. First avoiding stairs would be the best way to go but if you have to go up and down stairs and he is light enough to carry, carry him. You can us…e a wheelchair. These are your only options without installing an elevator.
no. not at all.
