My sister's hamster have Wet Tail. Help! She is shaking a paw similar to she have a requisition too?
Wet Tail is what she has, and she doesn't appear to drink as much as we'd like. I gave her some hose down with an eye dropper, and her paw started to shake rapidly like she be having a seizure! It stopped, but happened again 10 second later. She has stopped now. I am thinking that I give her too much in one gulp, and the water was a bit cold.
Also, does the brand Oasis work economically? We are using it and seeing good improvements in her diarrhea (light green to dark, but still a bit of mucus).
Also, she have scabs on her back near her head and shoulders, but the fur is growing vertebrae and the scabs are healing. We switched her bedding to aspen pellets and soft paper. Will she be okay?
There is NO vet around, are at hand any good household solutions to help her?
Please help, she's just a year and a half.
Only feed her plain oatmeal. No pellets or veggies of any brand, the oatmeal with help bind her. Don't cook it, give it dry. When you dispense her the dropper with water, make certain the water is room temp and only give her as much as she will clutch. You can help by grabbing her by the nape of her neck similar to a kitten (they have fat back within just like cats) and flipping her over bellyup and feed it to her that route. It is very important that she gets hose down. You can help the scabs on her back heal beside neosporine or anything like that.. put a little on a q-tip and rub it on. It would be very devoted if you could get to a vet and get Baytril, it's an antibiotic that treats Wet Tail. I hope I help a little :\
If you really can't get her to a vet (if you beg, any vet would probably take her contained by and do what they can for her) then your best bet is to try and keep her hydrated. Give unflavored Pedialyte in an eyedropper. This can normally be obtained at a drugstore or grocery store. Still, if your pet is already having tremor activity, she's got a very low fate of survival. I hate to say it, but without on the spot vet care, she probably won't make it.
I have no concept what Oasis is- is it a medication you bought at the pet store? If so, don't count on it to be remotely effective. Pet store antibiotics are a marketing ploy to trick pet owners into buying medications for their pet that won't do any good. To achieve adequate treatment, you must get her to a vet.
