    My Syrian hamster has just had some sort of fit for about 4 seconds. She done this a couple of...

    days ago in her exercise ball. She has no wetness around her bottom. Her cage is always cleaned every week.  I did drop her today and in total about 6 other times but she always seems fine and she does jump out of your hands alot. At the moment she is climbing al over her cage hanging upside down on her ladder. My partner seems to think because I try to give her some freedom she might be getting stressed in being in her cage. Oh! Please help me, I just don't know what to do? Thanks Rebecca

    What do you mean a 'fit'? Dropping her so many times may have caused brain trauma.

    She is my first hamster and it's not done on purpose. So making me feel any worse then what I already do doesn't help with my hamster does it.

    I thought you could give practical advise but it looks like I will have to go to the professionals.

    You could not find someone that loves this hamster as much as myself and she has everything and more a hamster could want. You name it and she has it.

    Many thanks for your support and lets just hope you don't give the same advise to a child who wants help with their hamster!

    go and see a vet

    a hamster is a very delicate animal, just by dropping it once it may have caused it an internal injury or brain damage as Whitney said. She was not trying to make you feel  bad but telling you what the reason of her fit could be.
