...but IS NOT wet tail?
I bought a hamster on April 19th, 2010 and it got wet tail from stress. :/ It seemed like it was better after I took it to the vet, and then it started agitating it tail with it's teeth. I took it to the vet again and he prescribed it something else so it would leave it's tail alone. Two days after the last visit to the vet it died. It seemed to get really really sick and hop around and fall over. I noticed that the hamster had flat ears for awhile. It's eyes were hardly open in the end. It also looked painful to walk or do anything. I never saw an animal that sick before. Mindy died on May 19th, 2010.
I got a hamster May 21st, 2010. It just died an hour ago, so basically on the 23rd. It seemed to have the same symptoms but this time the hamster seemed to become lethargic and very sick in the matter of one day.
I know it's not wet tail because it had no signs of wet tail, neither of them.
I bought the two hamsters from Petco, pretty much fromt he same cage, and a store employee said that they had a breakout of wet tail 3 weeks ago or something. He said that the hamster I got was from a new batch just recently.
I just know it's not wet tail, please help me. T___T
