Please take your pet to the vet immediately! Vets looks after ALL animals. It is really important you see that vet as soon as possible and I can't stress this enough.

Good luck Marcy

AnswerTake it to the Vet! It sounds like your piggy could have a calcium deficiency. If so this can be fixed.

What's wrong if your hamster broke its back leg a while ago and now it is dragging them behind it when he walks and the day it broke its leg it only was dragging one leg and now it's dragging both?

This is hard to say without actually seeing the hamster but my guess is that its other leg got tired and the bones healed into that position. I strongly recommend to bring it to the vet for a check up.
