my hamster keeps on sneezing. when i first got him i was using pine bedding, but then i noticed that he was sneezing so i switched to carefresh. he's still sleeping. i've noticed that stuff comes out when he sneezes. i dunno if its mucus or saliva. but he seems normal because he eats and drinks plenty and he runs in his wheel. but only like at 3:00 a.m to around i dunno how old he cause and ive only had him for around a month. HELP!!!

Your hamster may be sneezing because of the bedding or its sick. My hamster has been sneezing a lot in the past, but I didn't do anything, now she stopped sneezing a lot.

I just came home and my hamster seems to be dead. When we first got him, within a couple weeks, his eye was pussing and bleeding, but healed itself within an hour or so... We asked a vet and he said he was gonna be okay. He was sneezing (we think) quite a bit, but this was our fist pet and we weren't sure if that is just what hamsters sound like... Now he is gone...

From what I've Gathered, it seems that he had an upper respiratory infection which may have led to pneumonia... My ignorance made us lose our 12 weeks old fancy hamster. If your little one is sick, PLEASE take him/her to the vet immediately for antibiotics.

This is soooo important-I cannot stress how much. Don't be ignorant like I was, or your choices could be fatal.

My hamster Charlie is sneezing, he is eating and drinking, as well as running on his wheel. I really want to take him to the vet, but I just don't want them to say nothing is wrong and then charge me $50! It might be less.

Anyway. My hamster before him past away, and he made the same sound. We think it was from the pine bedding, so we got rid of it immediately. So yeah, he's sneezing and I don't want him to die. It's to painful:(
