If any animal starts going bald, it is a bad sign. Often, sudden baldness is an indication of a problem with the thyroid gland, or it could be more serious. The best option is to take the animal to the vet immediately.

Why is your hamster bald?

If a hamster is bald or is losing its fur, it may be rubbing up against something which is causing it to lose fur. Your hamster may be old enough to be losing fur. I have a hamster who is nearly 4 and isn't bald, but i also have a hamster who is nearly 2 and is half bald. She has been confirmed for mites and is being treated with antibiotics. If your hamster might have mites, i would suggest going to a vet. If you haven't cleaned out your hamster in a while do that, and it might grow back. I cleaned my hamster out and it grew back for a while, then went again so i changed her cage with a bigger one, but she was still bald. our hamster might even be stressed so place him/her in a quiet place and place a house inside the cage so she/he can retreat there when stressed. Try and calm him/her hold him/her and talk to them so they know you are there. Hope i helped. [: And good Luck.

That really depends where the bald patch is. Its normal for most hamsters to have a bald patch behind their ears. If its somewhere else on their body its likely that its caused from stress.

Noises can also cause a hamster stress.
