How do you get rid of mites on a dwarf hamster?
Is there a home remedy to get rid of mites on a dwarf hamster?
I don't know for sure if it's safe for hamsters you would have to look - but a natural mite/flea/mange treatment for cats and dogs is pure neem oil. It is considered safe (for the most part) and natural. It is also inexpensive and you can order it online. We use it on our dogs/cats without any problems.
The best thing to do is to go to your local pet store or your veterinarian and purchase a good quality flea and mite spray for small animals. Just be sure to read all the directions carefully and if you have any concerns call your local veterinarian and ask your questions.

Once you use the flea and mite spray the mites should be gone. Mites can cause hair lose and secondary skin infections on hamsters and other small animals including chickens.

My dwarf hamster just had babies yesterday. Today, she brought two of them out of the nest, made...a nest somewhere else and left them there ... she stays in the first nest with about 4 babies, but there are two babies alone in the second nest. I am worried!

I will put him in an old aquarium. It is large enough.I am soliciting all advice as to hamsterdom. For real. Of course, as always, I welcome humor as well.

we have dwarf hamsters. The mom had babies a few weeks ago and the babies now have their eyes...open. Can I put the dad back in cage with the mom and babies? The mom is still keeping them in her nest. I would really like the dad to be reunited.
