The hamster was bitten in her left hind leg when re-introduced into the cage with another hamster. She tried to escape while warded at Toa Payoh Vets. Her head was trapped.

Small skin lumps are best removed early. Hamster abscesses x 3. Toa Payoh Vets Itchy elbows, neck and hock - dwarf hamster, Singapore
May 8, 2005. BE KIND TO HAMSTERS. Some owners misconstrued advices on anaesthetic risks as incompetence of the vet.  More time must be spent to educate the owner as not every hamster anaesthesia is guaranteed to produce a hamster alive at the end of surgery.   Nov 30 2003. BE KIND TO HAMSTERS.
Consult Your Vet when hamsters feel slightly itchy. It is much easier to treat itchy skin when the area involved is a small area.  Left untreated, this hamster will be bald and red all over the body in a month or two and will die.

Be Kind To Hamsters
Examine them daily and get small tumours removed early. It is much cheaper too.
