    Breeding Requirements For Every Hamster Breed

    While breeding different hamsters, the rule to be kept in mind is that hamsters should be bred only in and according to their precise breeds i.e. breeding just Syrian hamsters or breeding just the Dwarf hamsters. It is not a good idea to go for breeding hamsters of unlike breed types as they may fight each other leading to death and even if the mating is successful somehow, then there may be pregnancy and birth complications of the hybrids or abnormalities in the off springs resulting from the cross breeding.

    Breeding Syrian Hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus)

    If one has Syrian hamster, the only occasion that the male and female hamsters should be brought together is when the female is on heat, which, in this case will be about every four days. When breeding hamsters the breeding of young females needs to be avoided as it might result in poor development of litter and later rejection of pups by the mother. Breeding Syrian hamsters is relatively difficult as they mostly fight and it may result in one of them getting killed.

    Common Hamster Diseases

    Common Hamster Diseases

    1. Diarrhoea

    This should not be confused with wet tail as it is not that severe and can be cured easily.

    Prevention

    Do not over feed vegetables and fruits and if there may be a need to change your hamster’s diet then do it gradually.

    Symptoms

    Loose, light coloured droppings and a wet bottom.

     

    Treatment

    Remove all fresh fruit and vegetables from diet and instead offer plenty of water, burnt toast and dry grains.

     

    2. Diabetes

    Causes

    Diabetes is when the body is not capable to break down sugars either for the reason that there is a lack of insulin i.e. type 1 diabetes or the insulin is not functioning as it should be i.e. type 2 diabetes. This becomes a source of high sugar levels in the blood and urine.

    Symptoms

    These include drinking overly, urinating more often and in bigger volumes (urine may smell like nail polish remover), amplified appetite, abrupt weight loss or weight  gain, napping more than normal or too much exercise, tetchiness, or unusual biting, ‘squinty’ eyes when wakeful and a hunched posture.
