It might have an eye infection but if its the first time probally not. If this happens several times go to the vets. Just bathe the eye by using kitchen roll and luke warm water and softly dab at the eye. Then soon after it should return to normal!
p.s. This is what i do to mine and it works! :)
I am no professional on hamsters. But not long after my hamsters eyes popped out, he became pitiful and sorry to say, shortly died. My Hammy got to where he could not walk, eat, drink. He was old, they dont live long like cats or dogs. I gave him diluted alcolic drinks for pain. But, perhaps your hamster has something else going on than mine did. Good luck! Sincerely, another pet lover. : - (
i phoned pet world in Bolton and they said it's because i held him too tightly, so don't worry your hamster may not die...
well there might be a really brigjt light in their eyes or you know when you wake up in the morning and yo uhave that crusty stuff on your eyes well hamsters get that too but it goes over there etes and they cant see and when that happens take a cloth or toilet paper and run in in warm watter and gently take the clothe or toilet paper and rub the eye with gentle back and forth motion and remember GENTLY or youll make you hamster blind or hurt it really bad... so take the cloth and try to wipe away the crust off the hamsters eyes... by the way DO NOT and i repeat DO NOT try to open the eyes by pulling open the eye lid you will rip the eye lids and give your hamster external and internal bleeding.
This is a very common in hamsters and there can be lots of reasons for this. Often when a hamster has a cold this happens. An eye infecion is also possible. You need to take the hamster to the vets to give him some antibiotics some eyedrops
The eye color is determined by genes of the parents. Somewhere in its family tree, there was an albino.
My hamsters eye is bulging she eventually started showing irritation in the eye would suggest seeing a veterinarian ASAP
If your hamster is squinting I suggest you take it to the vet- it may have an eye problem, as healthy hamsters should have big bright black eyes.
This is normal. sometimes gunk in the hamsters eye keeps it from opening. DO NOT DO ANYTHING TO REMOVE THE GUNK. the hamster can remove it by itself. This happened to my hamster too.
because it has it's eye closed t's probably winking
It sleeps with 2 eyes closed
i got mine at petsmart but if you want a hamster to hold i would recomend you should get a bigger one
they can sleep long with one eye open -they'll drown if both are closed also their eye is open to sense danger or they'll die.
If the cage is too small take it back and get a new one! Never get anything hamster for a guinea pig. If you have a small cage then that means you got a hamster cage.
I wont pretend to be a pet expert, but take it to the vet as soon as possible.
It sleeps with 2 eyes closed
she got sumin in her eye
you may get babies of either eye color, or a combo. they had a really cute hamster in the pet store last week that had one ruby eye and one black eye.
because they only see out of one eye.
by owning one and holding it a lot (that's how i got rid of my hamster fear)
nope, ive already got a hamster and i dont want another one
It could have wetail which is a fatal disease that causes diarrhea and dehydration. Try to get it to a vet ASAP. I have had 3 hamsters die from this.
He has a mental issue
I got a hamster for my 13th birthday and as a young one he used too bite all the time! He dosent now though as he has got used to me and family, he is a very tame one and a lovely pet (: X
Dance on the table with one eye closed
No, I'm sorry. But if she looks at you with one eye closed, opens it and then winks, then yes. (Though if a girl likes a guy, they usually don't wink.)
He may have a eye infection or other problem so he should be taken to a vet right away.
