My friend picked up a hamster from a pet shop with P.I on purpose and she took it to a vet. The hamster survived and is living in a super big bin cage

This really freaks me out! I was going to get a Syrian hamster because I heard they are very friendly and amazing pets but now I'm wondering if I should get a dwarf hamster? (I'm a newbie)

Thank you for this vid. Erin. I am a 47 year old first time hamster owner. I got my new friend 10 days ago and he appears very healthy and happy He's a little shy, but, I'm starting to tame him slowly. He's a Syrian. His name is Everest (he's a climber). Thank you for this video and all your other hamster vids. They are helping me tremendously.

My Syrian Hamster 'Ghosties' recently passed on from wet tail. 
I did go vets in early days but medication they gave didn't get her through.

When I got my hamster, I handled him right away before I even put him in the cage, he never got wet tail and didn't show any signs of stress or aggression. I guess I was lucky😊 but I guess it depends on the hamster.

My hamster is a wet tail survivor caused of stress and we had to give her vitamins for a week and got cured though it was very hard time for him and us and thought that she wouldnt live but she is now healthy and happy

Stress can also be caused by those goddamn Tiny Tales cages that everyone seems to “love”. If you have Tiny Tales or Crittertrails get rid of them



Keep in mind Crittertrails can cost 38 something dollars on Amazon but a bin cage can cost 20-24 dollars (with the exception of water bottles, wheels, food dishes, chews, toys). Why people still choose these cages, I really couldn’t tell you.

before my hamster died, he would walk around with his eyes closed, i just thought it was because he was tired as he was a pretty lazy hamster. my mum has had many hamsters in the past and she said that he might have p.i. and that she would check, she checked and he was fine. but then the next day she checked him again and he had wet tail. sadly he died r.i.p taco 💖

im getting a hamster today (hopefully) and i was worried that the same thing might happen, but thanks to this video, i am much more confident on how to treat, and notice the signs of wet tail.

also, if hamsters close their eyes while walking and it looks a bit gunky, is that a sign of wet tail? thank you for everything!

Our hamster (we got her last week) was showing symptoms on sunday. The shop we got her from (Pets at Home) took her back to their own vet and payed for the bills and she has survived. We brought her back home today!

I was monitoring my hamster because she's so weak now, but last night she was doing very well. I don't really on how she get wet tail but I really hoped that she survived  but there's only 15% chance for that to happen. I will miss her :"(

Thank you so much, you have helped me to find out what was wrong with my hamster and most likely saving her life.

I think my previous hamster, Blizzy, died of wet tail. She was an angel and a very dear friend. It is very, very important to keep your hamster's stress levels as low as possible, as I believe stress lead her to contract the disease.
