HAMSTER SURGERIES  - Veterinary Surgeons
TIPS FOR THE FAMILY VETS who do not wish to operate on large hamster tumours as anaesthesia is highly risky. You will do the owner a good service by referring him to a vet who does it. If the family vet just prescribes medication and advises the owner to euthanase the hamster when the tumour grow bigger and smelly, he or she will not generate good will. Some of the young hamster owners will then do online research to locate a hamster vet for the surgery.
