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.
By taking it to the vet to find out why it is losing its fur.
No - if the hamster is going bald in the scratched areas, that sounds like a mite infestation. Take it to the vet.
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.
Your hamster goes bald and grows a black spot on its back because it is about to die.
Shave the rest of the head
My hamster used to have a bald patch until i rubbed on some tea tree cream on to the bald area for a couple of days until the fur started to grow back in. Hope this comes in useful :)
It is not normal and you might want to get it checked out.
Maybe because of the type of hamster you have. It might be a Syrian kind of type.
Your boxer dog is going bald because it is aging.
No, all hamsters have bald spots behind their ears.
I'm sorry but your hamster has a disease you have to kill it some how and than burn the body. my old hamster died from that
No he is not going bald. His hair is like every other person's.
If your hamster gets a bald patch on its fur, you need to take it to the vet straight away! There is a possibility that it may have parasites.
yes, if its a dude. those are its man ham parts
Sometimes when hamsters are stressed they rip their fur off.
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. This could be because the hamster is not getting a proper balance of 12 hours light and 12 hours dark, has felt an extreme change in temperature, or is particularly cold or hot. Noises can also cause a hamster stress.
You should tske it back where you got it for a free check up. It could have a serious dieses and if you have other hamsters make sure you keep them seperaited
She might kill the male hamster.
you can tell if your hamster is going to have babies if there belly is saggy and it is not getting much exercise.
A hamster with a dislocated shoulder is not going to die. He should be taken to the vet, who can pop the shoulder back into place and heal the hamster.
Frankly, he is bald. Now he wears a wig.
It comes with age.
Of course not!
