His teeth should grow back if they broke off if the entire tooth fell out probably not hamsters teeth never stop growing as long as they live this is why they are always chewing to keep there teeth at a respectable lenth.

AnswerIf the whole tooth broke off they will never grow back. If this has happened or until the teeth grow back, your hamster will be quite happy eating mush. You can soak his hamster food in a little warm water before you give it to him to soften it up a bit or feed him porridge oats made with warm water as neither will require chewing. You can also make a mash with any leftover vegetables (steamed or boiled only with no salt etc) which all hamsters love anyway. AnswerYou also need to tackle the reason why he was nibbling at his cage in the first place. It is likely that he is bored and doesn't have anything suitable in his cage to chew on. Hamsters need to chew regularly to keep their teeth from becoming overgrown. You should provide him with things to chew in his cage such as the cardboard centre of toilet rolls and safe branches such as apple, hawthorne and hazelnut and also plenty of entertainment.

Our hamster regularly swung using his two front paws from the top bars. One day he slipped and broke his teeth on the side bars. Over the next few weeks he got thin and lethargic , you could see he was trying the food but couldn't eat. We started giving him baby food and sun butter. He loves the butternut squash, applesauce, carrots. His size, energy and coat all look great now. he still has no teeth but the baby food is definitely working and he is happy, active and apparently healthy. Hopefully his teeth will grow back but at least he is getting nourishment.

sure... if the hamster/ gerbil bit through your skin, then put some disinfectent and a band-aid on it. If you were bit, then leave the animal alone for a little while.

Either they are cold and are trying to concerve energy, (which you should either put a heating pad under part of the cage to keep him/her warm,) or your hamster is about to die. I hope it's the former.

Obviously, your hamster is still scared of you. Try petting it, fedding it, anything that will make a hamster get to know you better.

If you still want to play with the hamster and take it out of its cage then gardening gloves are a good idea. They enable you to still be able to have fun with your hamster, but if he turns nasty then you are protected from being bitten.

When your female hamster gives birth and you still have the male in the same cage, your female hamster may get pregnant in a matter of days. if not, hours.

They still x-ray it, and if you're trying to take it overseas, you probably have no chance.

I have seasonal allergies and a hamster. I used to keep my hamster in the basement and now she is in my room, but there isn't really much of a difference. so no i don't think that a hamster would make things worse, but if you are still unsure don't keep the hamster in your room

un hamster is masculine. To indicate a female, you say 'un hamster femelle', but the piece of sentence is still masculine.

That means that your hamster is a different breed and needs to be pregnant.

They are probibly scared! A hamster in a tube is like living in those play tubes you play in when you a kid.

A hamster if it is dead looks the same just staying still. It may have no color depending what it died from .

Hamsters get less active when they age, like all animals. If the hamster is still, than it might be old. However, the hamster could be deciding something or sleeping.

Well, if my hamster needs to do its business, my hamster usually gets into a comfortable spot and stays still for a while stareing at somethinghope you find out!

Don't put a hamster in with rabbits. While they're likely to ignore each other, there is still the potential that the hamster may get kicked or trampled accidently.

(just to say that you need to hold your hamster LOADS if you do travel so it will stay tame, it is a good idea to get a hamster sitter when on holiday to feed your hamster) hope i helped ox

It depends. If you're willing to take care of a real hamster, go for it. with zhu zhu pets you don't have to clean up after them. But really, they are no fun. All they do is make annoying noises and roll around. When you pick them up, they will pinch your fingers if they are still trying to roll.
